Jamie Carragher fired a cheeky Valentines joke at Sky presenter Dave Jones after the presenter “pulled his groin” attempting the NFL Keepy Up challenge.

A host of guests in the Sky Sports studio have been attempting to do kick-ups with an American football ahead of Sunday night’s Super Bowl between the Cincinnati Bagels and the LA Rams.

The likes of Jamie Redknapp and Micah Richards had attempted the challenge prior to Sunday’s games.

It was Carragher and Jones’ turn to attempt the challenge – but Jones ended up injuring himself after stretching to regain the ball following a wayward touch.

And fans were left in stitches after Carragher snuck in a cheeky Valentines joke while Jones was hobbling back to his seat.

The ex-Liverpool man quipped: “The groin! On Valentine’s weekend as well!”

While nobody has done themselves harm like Jones, the segment has been a hit for Sky ahead of Sunday night’s Super Bowl showdown.

Fans were in hysterics after Kelly Cates and Chris Hughton were captured in the background of Redknapp’s attempt the previous day ignoring the former Reds man’s attempts.

But his attempt wasn’t a patch on Jones and Carragher’s.

Although Jones misfortune caught the eye, it wasn’t the only incident on Super Sunday that left fans amused.

There was no love lost ahead as Richards took a cheeky swipe at Carragher’s allegiance to Everton as a child before his iconic playing career for the Toffees bitter rivals.

During a discussion on players turning out for their boyhood clubs, the former Manchester City ace joked: “You’ve played for your boyhood club, well you switched from Everton.

“He’s told me he was Liverpool, then he went to Everton and then he went back there.”

His comments left the Sky studio in stitches before Richards, fighting back tears of laughter, added: “He’s Everton when he wants to be and he’s Liverpool when he wants to be, you know what I mean.”
