Sportsmen have been engaging mouths before brains again this week, and we've rounded up the most glaring examples...

"Pep is in New York so his problem is the typhoon."
Amid speculation that Pep Guardiola could be being lined up as Manchester City's next manager, Roberto Mancini could be forgiven for hoping the former Barcelona man got blown away with Hurricane Sandy.

"He is going to have to dive in front of a lot of managers now."
David Moyes suggests that Luis Suarez may just have found his signature goal celebration - forget the 'Klinsmann dive', it's the 'Suarez simulation'.

"That little nutcracker dude who's guarding the house."
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski explains who he was trying to impersonate with his touchdown celebration. The 'house' is Buckingham Palace.

"People know me by now and I don't give a flying..."
Tony Pulis invites fans to finish his sentence. Answers on a postcard to ESPN Towers...

"It was like having sex with Madonna."
Paolo Di Canio just loved to score during his professional career

"I was playing Family Feud earlier today with my phone and I was really competitive with some other person in the digital world. I don't even know who they were and I got angry."
Serena Williams competitive? We don't fancy telling her

"If he drops me I'll never speak to him again."
Graeme Swann also told Alastair Cook he'd steal his bike if he didn't let him play with his toy cars.
