Viewers of last night's Late Late Show were less than impressed with an 'insensitive' photo of Seamus Coleman shared during a photography segment. 

A photo of the moment the Irish footballer suffered a serious leg break was featured in the segment about a photography competition, with Ryan jokingly exclaiming "Bend it like Beckham". 

One Twitter user wrote: "Shocking and distasteful of The Late Late Show to celebrate the photo of Seamus Coleman horror tackle last year! Best wishes to him resurrecting his career!"

Another added: 

'How does Ryan Tubridy keep doing it Bend it like Beckam indeed - that was Seamus Coleman's broken leg. - bad enough showing picture without warning! @FAIreland @offtheball

Another viewer commented: "Ah now, having Seamus Coleman’s leg break as an 'award winning' picture is taking the mick, the poor fella".

The Republic of Ireland captain underwent surgery on a fractured right tibia and fibula he suffered in a World Cup qualifier back in March and made his Everton return just last month.
