The Euro 2024 ceremony had to stop for a few seconds after someone started playing sex noises from an audio device.

As some of the names were read out, rude sounds started to be picked up by the camera and those in the audience, with the presenter having to stop the proceedings until it ceased.

The same happened during the BBC's FA Cup coverage in January, courtesy of YouTube prankster Jarvo and his same-sex noise prank. Now, this very individual has asserted ownership of Saturday's stunt, as he captions the video on Twitter: "Pranking UEFA Euro 2024 Draw with sex noise."

What was the Euro 2024 draw?

The Euro 2024 draw took place on Saturday 2 December in Hamburg. There were four ‘Pots’ and each final group consists of one team from each of the four ‘Pots.’
