BBC Breakfast presenter Sally Nugent interrupted a report from Qatar to ask about an odd thing she had spotted in the background of the live video interview. During an interview with a group of UK fans in Qatar ahead of the England vs Wales game set to take place tomorrow (Tuesday, November 29), Sally spotted a large golden sculpture.

During the episode, Sally interrupted the BBC interview to ask: “John, can you settle a little debate for us here in the studio? Jon here is telling me that the giant gold thing behind you is a thumb, I’m not sure, I think it’s a golden baguette.” Sally wasn’t left waiting long before she was told that it was in fact a golden thumb designed by a French artist.

Presenter John Watson acted as detective to work out the shape of the golden statue

It turns out that the giant golden thumb was put up especially in Doha, Qatar, for the arrival of the World Cup. The reporter, John Watson, who was live in Qatar at the time said that the sculpture may well be a symbol for a ‘thumbs up’ to the tournament which is well underway.

The fans being interviewed at the time couldn’t help but laugh as Sally mistook the thumb for a giant golden baguette but thankfully the ‘mysterious item’ was identified by reporter John Watson and the debate between Sally and her co-star, Jon Kay, was cleared up.

Sally couldn’t help but ask the question on her mind

John Watson said: “It is by a French artist, I’m told. There’s one in Paris that he’s done and then this one was put up for the World Cup.

Sally added at the end of the report: “You clearly know more than me, it is not a golden baguette.”

The pair of presenters then quickly moved on to the next segment of this morning’s show following the odd sighting the background of the World Cup report.

There has been lots of debate and discussion surrounding this year’s World Cup in Qatar, but BBC Breakfast may be the first and last to have a debate over whether a golden baguette was erected in Doha.
