Cricket superstar Chris Gayle has been slammed after hitting on a female reporter during an interview live on TV.
The West Indies legend was being interviewed on Australian TV by Channel Ten’s Mel McLaughlin.
But while she was keen to discuss the 41 runs from 15 balls that Gayle had just scored, he made the interview uncomfortable with remarks about her.
“I wanted to come and have an interview with you as well,” he told McLaughlin.
“That’s the reason why I’m here, just to see your eyes for the first time. It’s nice so…"
“Hopefully we can win this game and have a drink after. Don’t blush baby."
Even former England star Andrew Flintoff, who has worked for Channel Ten as a commentator, struck a disapproving tone saying on Twitter: “Well played @Mel_Mclaughlin!! Big fan of @henrygayle but made himself look a bit of a chop there @tensporttv.”
