David Haye ridiculed for performance on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'

  • Alex Batt

David Haye has dealt with pressure moments his entire career.

Being a professional sportsman, and one of the very elite during his peak years as well, he has always been in the headlines and has always had pressure on his shoulders.

More often than not when he was boxing, he would deal with said pressure and come out victorious, however, it was all too much for him on a recent episode of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'.

During the celebrity version of the quiz show, it didn't take long for Hayemaker to run into trouble.

In fact, it was only on the £500 question when he needed help from the audience, despite it being a fairly obvious answer.

Host Jeremy Clarkson asked: "Which of these words is also the name of a glass used to drink champagne?”

The options that came out were: Guitar, Bassoon, Cello and Flute.

Obvious four options that were also musical instruments, but champagne glasses can also be known as flutes.

After receiving the four options, what made things worse for Haye was when he said that a cello sounded more like a musical instrument. Seemingly ignoring the fact that all four of them are musical instruments.

The former boxer did then admit that it's one of those that is so obvious, that it's not obvious, but going by the reaction on social media, it's safe to say he should have got the answer right instantly.

Alas, he used one of his lifelines and asked the audience, claiming that they all looked like an intelligent bunch and hadn't been punched in the head their entire life.

Unsurprisingly, a staggering 96% of the audience voted for D, which was, of course, flute.

To be fair to Haye, he was a professional boxer and a very good one at that, so maybe he's just never had champagne before...

Who are we kidding, though, surely he should've known that!
