If you needed a reminder that transfer deadline day is one part transfers and one part slapstick, then look no further than Sky Sports News, where roving reporter Gary Cotterill was sprayed by silly string during a live broadcast outside West Ham United's Upton Park.

The journalist was trying to bring news of the arrival of Colombia defender Pablo Armero from Napoli, and in his defence, he didn't let the silly string stop him.

The bad news for Cotterill is that at the time of the silly string, there were still four hours left before the window slammed shut, meaning all kinds of high-jinks remained possible.
