BBC Breakfast: Naga Munchetty red-faced after guest CORRECTS her during awkward interview NAGA MUNCHETTY was left feeling rather embarrassed by a guest during an awkward interview on BBC Breakfast today. PUBLISHED: 09:02, Wed, Dec 20, 2017 | UPDATED: 12:49, Wed, Dec 20, 2017. The 42-year-old had been quizzing athlete Tony Bowman about his incredible sprinting success at the mature age of 82, when she found herself being corrected by him. After Tony mentioned that he had ran the 100 metres in 14 seconds, Naga quickly pointed out that his sprint was just seconds behind world record holder Usain Bolt, saying: “It’s only five seconds slower than Usain Bolt, so that’s what puts this in to context. Contradicting Naga’s statement Tony quickly pulled her up on the comment, adding: “I’ve got to pick you up on that a little bit, because five seconds is a long way in 100 metres. Seemingly unimpressed with the guest correcting her, Naga hit back: “Yes, but not between an 82-year-old and how old is Usain Bolt? 28, 29 and one of the greatest athletes we’ve seen on the track. Appearing to try and dissolve any tension between the pair, co-host Charlie Stayt interrupted with a question of his own. The 55-year-old asked Tony whether he had always been active or if he began participating in athletics later on in life. “I went to a grammar school in Twickenham which was very strong in running and sport and I have always been sports minded,” Tony said. “I’ve got to say I’ve almost put sports in front of everything. Earning exceptional money for a living for instance. I’ve always wanted to keep fit.”. Despite Charlie’s efforts to move the discussion on, viewers were quick to slam Naga’s interview style. Some fans of the show took to Twitter to blast Naga’s handling of the situation, with one writing: “So Bolt beats him by over 50 metres Naga. He is very good, but the Bolt analogy isn’t great.”. “#BBCBreakfast I find this patronising, stop mentioning his age #superagers,” added another.
