GARY Lineker’s form-hugging shirts have been hailed as the tightest ever worn by a football presenter.
Some experts even believe the former-England striker’s shirts may be even tauter across the chest than those worn by the legendary Malcom ‘Big Mal’ Allison during the 1970 tournament.
Football historian Roy Hobbs said: “The past eight World Cups have been characterized by free-flowing clothing that has left even die-hard fans reaching for the remote. Brazil 2014 is different. The tightness is back.
“There have been some great tight shirt moments over the years, Ray Stubbs in USA ’94, for example. And people will always talk about Barry Venison’s contours.
“But I literally can’t take my eyes off the TV for fear of missing a side-seam splitting.”
