It was all going so well for the debonair Pep Guardiola.
One minute the Bayern Munich manager was contently watching his side overcome a first-leg deficit to thrash FC Porto 6-1 in the Champions League quarter-finals, and the next? Well, things started to come away at the seams.

Despite his sartorial mishap, the 44-year-old carried on regardless, conducting his team from the sidelines in a match that ended in a rip-roaring 7-4 aggregate victory.
