In 2004, while covering a live football match, pundit Ron Atkinson thought he was speaking off air but his microphone was still switched on and millions heard him call Marcel Desailly a 'fucking lazy thick nigger' on live TV. He was sacked the next day.

Transcript (as well as I can make out)

"I've always thought he had no aware of the danger. He's what is known in some schools as a fucking lazy thick nigger. That is a fucking disgusting performance that. Full marks to them, they fucking, they were different class."
