When you're in high pressure scenario like say, I don't know, a historic rugby match, emotions tend to run a little high — as was the case with Johnny Sexton today.

After Peter O'Mahony sustained an injury during the match that would be Ireland's third test series win over the Wallabies, Sexton approached French referee Pascal Gaüzère to contest a decision. However, when the ref was clearly unmoved by the out-half's appeals, Sexton fired at him: "I know you hate me, but you have to talk to me".

And the mic managed to catch the moment for everyone at home to hear...

In fairness, there are plenty of worse things he could've said.
