Low was spotted picking his nose a few times before something even worse in Euro 2016, when he was spotted sticking his hand down the front of his trousers for a bit of a scratch…before then sniffing his hand.

The Germany boss has an explanation, it seems. See what you make of it.

As per Sport Bible, he said: “I saw the pictures as well and obviously sometimes you do things subconsciously. It happened and I am sorry.

“It was adrenaline and concentration. I will try to behave differently in the future.”

We’re not at all convinced, and neither is Biochemist Dr Patrick Healy, who told SB Nation: “I have not done any research on this, but I can’t see any reason adrenaline would do that.

“It makes no sense at all. The only explanation is that he was fidgety because of it, but that’s stretching it.”
