Toe Poke Daily: Sacked in the news conference, you're getting sacked in the news conference

The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.

"Sacked in the morning, you're getting sacked in the morning!" We've all heard the chant directed at under-pressure managers.

- Game called off after players get stuck on train
- Messi attends his Cirque du Soleil premiere
- The most iconic names in football

But it is a rarity -- and when we say a rarity, we mean a rarity -- that those managers are sacked in the middle of doing their jobs. Yet that's what happened to a translator working with Croatia.

In the midst of relaying the word of Ivan Perisic prior to a Euro 2020 qualifier in Wales, the translator assisting Croatia was told in the middle of a news conference that he wasn't translating the Bayern Munich man's words accurately, and was subsequently dismissed mid-interview.

Ruthless.

Coventry's 2 Tone kit

It's been 40 years since the formation of 2 Tone Records. Typically, here at the Toe Poke, we don't make a habit of celebrating the anniversaries of record labels. But in the case of this Coventry-based outfit, we'll make an exception.

And that's because Coventry City are celebrating their anniversary with a special-edition 2 Tone kit.

The kit features the checkerboard pattern and Walt Jabsco character that have comprised 2 Tone's logo throughout the years, as well as a white top and black bottom, and prominent anti-racism Kick It Out branding on the inside of the collar.

The Sky Blues wore the kit in Sunday's 1-0 League One defeat to Tranmere Rovers.
