Gabby Logan has been hosting some of the BBC's coverage of the Olympics in Tokyo.

And on Saturday morning, the veteran presenter laughed off an accidental wardrobe malfunction that saw her and colleagues Denise Lewis and Jessica Ennis-Hill all clothed in red and pink ensembles.

Gabby quickly addressed the unintentional colour coordination when the show began and explained how she and the sporting experts should have discussed what they were planning to wear.

Gabby said: “It’s a big day isn’t it? It just feels like things have ramped up. So much so that we decided to wear exactly the same colour today and didn’t consult."

The ladies were also joined by Michael Johnson but he did not match them.

“Obviously Michael has got a sort of mind of his own Denise,” Gabby teased as Michael was seen sporting a grey T-shirt.

“We’re teaming in the grey that’s all that matters,” Denise joked as she shared that Michaels shirt matched her grey trousers.

Gabby then explained her reasoning behind donning bright red.

She said: “Red is my good luck colour. What else could I wear for Dina Asher Smith today?

“So I put my red on. Is that your excuse?” Gabby asked Jessica.

“It’s my good luck colour too,” Jessica laughed.

“You’d think we’d communicated before but we actually hadn’t. So, yeah maybe it’s a good thing,” she continued.

Gabby then told viewers that the first time she saw her co-stars was moments before they went live.

She explained: “Because of Covid, we are completely separate until we come into the studio two minutes before we come on air.

“Then we see we’ve had a wardrobe malfunction. But, never mind!

“I think it just adds a little bit of red hot fire to what is going to be an incredible day whatever happens you know.

"Denise this is enormous isn’t it? The women’s 100 meters is stacked with talent,”

“We’re adding the spice, yeah? A little bit more spice to what has already been an amazing 100 meters so far,” Denise added.

Athlete Dina Asher-Smith withdrew from the 200m due to a hamstring injury, ending her hopes of gold at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, over the weekend,.

Asher-Smith arrived at the Games as one of the favourites for sprint glory having won the 200m at the 2019 World Championships, where she also came second in the 100m.

But, unbeknown to fans, the Team GB poster girl was suffering with a substantial injury in Saturday's 100m event, and she bowed out at the semi-final stage with a third-place finish.
