Forget the sports coverage - all viewers seemed to care about was Helen Skelton's legs.

We're guessing Helen Skelton had no idea that her outfit choice at the Rio Olympics would spark a Twitter meltdown.

But it seems the BBC presenter's short skirt was a heck of lot more interesting than the swimming competition she was covering.

Viewers took to social media to slam Skelton's attire, saying she had "forgotten her trousers" or was more suitably dressed for "clubbing" than sports coverage.

Fortunately, the fact that it was a hot and humid day in Rio, and Skelton's co-host Mark Foster was also showing some leg in his short shorts, didn't go unnoticed by plenty of other viewers who came to Skelton's defence.
