BBC News presenter Simon McCoy made a bit of an error this morning, mistaking a pack of photocopier paper for his iPad.
But as it was live, Mr. McCoy bravely soldiered on, presenting a piece to camera on police proposals for “drunk tanks” while holding a load of paper, because he is a professional.
Admire the calm and unflappable nature of his body language.
Mr. McCoy, we salute you.
This morning as Simon McCoy was preparing to introduce this story, instead of picking up his tablet to hold as he went to air, he mistakenly picked up a ream of paper that was sitting next to it.In the rush of live news, he didn't have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it.
Mr. McCoy was previously well known for being caught, er, "resting his head" on his desk when he thought he was off air.
