As the ongoing coronavirus situation wreaks havoc on almost every sporting event across the globe, our beloved sports announcers are bored out of their brains.

So bored, in fact, that one commentator has resorted to giving a play-by-play of his dogs racing to eat their breakfast.

Andrew Cotter, a sports broadcaster from the UK, took to Twitter to share the incredible content.

“I was bored,” the BBC Sports commentator simply captioned the video.

The 46-year-old hilariously narrated the mundane activity like it were a sporting event. Cotter is a prominent BBC sports commentator, and has worked on major events like the 2016 Rio Olympics, but nothing really compares to this iconic rae.

“Olive five-times the champion, Mabel the rising star, winner last year,” Cotter said. “You can see how excited they are but feel the tension.”

His two labradors, Olive and Mabel, have gone viral after the iconic race to finish their food because there’s literally no other sports to watch anymore.

“Heavy tail use, happy to be alive, everything is amazing” he describes Mabel’s technique.

However, it was 7-year-old Olive’s “relentless” tactic of “tasting absolutely nothing” that reigned supreme. Ultimately, the black lab won the race like a true champion.

In less than 48 hours, the video has been viewed more than 7 million times, amassing 250,000 likes and 66,000 retweets.

But it’s not just regular folk like you and I who were amused by the video, with celebrities like Ryan Reynolds even cracking a smile at this premium dog content.

This is the world we live in now, and I’m not even mad about it.

Sure, AFL is cool. NRL, too. But can anything really compare to the cutthroat world of dogs racing to finish their breakfast?

If you think you may have coronavirus, either call your doctor (DON’T visit) or contact the national Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080. If you’re struggling to breathe or experiencing a medical emergency, call 000.

And please remember to wash your hands frequently (for at least 20 seconds) and keep at least 1.5 metres between you and those around you.
