A radio DJ sent a picture of his man-hood to a stunned London 2012 paralympic gold medallist – then apologised for the “surprise pork sausage” meant for his girlfriend.
Dom Harvey, a host on New Zealand station The Edge, was intending to deliver his radio producer girlfriend a saucy reminder of his talents through the Snapchat social media tool.
But instead, the mysterious manhood popped into the inbox of Kiwi paralympic swimmer Sophie Pascoe as she competed at a meeting in Canada.
A startled Pascoe tweeted about the incident before winning gold in the 100m freestyle in world record time.
“Just finished eating dinner and opened Snapchat. #awkward surprise,” she wrote.
The DJ says he immediately said sorry to the swimmer, who he somehow confused with his lover Sophie Hallwright.
But according to the New Zealand Herald, his apology was rather inappropriate as well.
In reference to Pascoe’s marketing contract with NZ beef and lamb, the DJ reportedly said: “So sorry about that Snapchat.
“I know you like beef and lamb … but nobody deserves a surprise pork sausage.”
Pascoe has refused to comment further, but Harvey’s boss at Mediaworks, Leon Wratt said: “It was a stupid thing to do.
“No one feels stupider than Dom himself but he has apologised.
“No disciplinary action is planned.”
It is not the first time Harvey has been in trouble.
In 2010 he was suspended following a song about the lesbian relationship of TV presenter Ali Mau.
