VIDEO: Robbie Keane's awkward Skype conversation with Ireland fans

One lucky couple in Sydney won a chat with the La Galaxy striker. Here’s how it went down.

WHEN THREE ANNOUNCED last week that the prize for their latest competition was a Skype chat with Ireland captain Robbie Keane, we thought it sounded like an odd idea.

However, even we couldn’t have imagined that the resulting conversation would be so painful.

Before Robbie is unveiled, the couple receiving the call in Australia bring out a special guest of their own – no, not Emile Heskey – a cat named Mr Bigglesworth.

When the LA Galaxy striker does join in, he asks “How’s it going over in Australia?” before bringing up everyone’s favourite topic… the weather.
