Turkish television station TRT had to cut short their commentary of Arsenal's Champions League tie with Barcelona on Tuesday due to the audible swearing coming from the Emirates Stadium crowd.

Commentators Yalcin Cetin and Omer Urundul were located in an overspill area in close proximity to the Arsenal fans, who could be heard swearing over the network's coverage.

The Gunners faithful were less than impressed with the performance of referee Cuneyt Cakir, and some could be heard shouting "f--king w--ker" at the Turkish official. 

The commentators persisted for 65 minutes, before eventually deciding to pack it in as the foul language became the talk of social media.

The mantel was instead taken up by pundits inside the TRT studio, as a Lionel Messi brace secured Barca a 2-0 away win.
