'F***ing brilliant' – Italy star Michele Lamaro turns airwaves blue live on BBC One after heroic win over Wales

ITALY captain Michele Lamaro hailed his country's last-gasp Six Nations win over Wales as "f***ing amazing".

After the emotional 22-21 victory in Cardiff, Italy's first Six Nations triumph since 2015, Lamaro spoke to the BBC.


He was visibly emotional after guiding his side to the unlikely win and turned airwaves blue live on air with his description of Edoardo Padovani's late try.

Rather than an insightful, tactical analysis of the game-winning score, Lamaro blurted out: "That last try was f***ing amazing!"

BBC presenter Gabby Logan quickly apologised to viewers for the expletive as Lamaro concluded his interview.

But fans on social media were quick to forgive the heroic 23-year-old captain for his outburst.

A third gushed: "I love Michele Lamaro – everytime I see him, he makes me smile!"

Lamaro was only named as Italy captain in October 2021, but the young flanker is quickly establishing himself as a brilliant leader.

Leading the Azzurri to their first Six Nations win in 36 GAMES will do his reputation no harm either.

Lamaro's eyes watered as the final whistle blew in Cardiff, while a number of his Italy team-mates were left in floods of tears after the incredible result.

He also said in his post-match interview: "Unreal, I couldn't even believe that.

"I just want to stay with my family and team-mates and celebrate with them because we all really deserve that and we worked so hard to get here.

"This is just for us the last step in the Six Nations, but the first step of our long process that we've just started."
