Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield proves he “is human after all” in hilarious moment on BBC

Kevin Sinfield has always gone above and beyond whether on the rugby league field or off it.

The former Leeds Rhinos skipper, who also captained his country, is Super League’s most successful skipper with seven titles to his name having contested eight at Old Trafford.

He also won three World Club Challenges, three League Leaders’ Shields and a pair of Challenge Cups.

A Lance Todd Trophy winner, a two time Harry Sunderland Award winner and even a Gold Boot winner, Sinfield picked up individual accolades as well.

He was a treble winner in his final season and he holds the record for the most points and goals in Super League as well as the second most appearances.

From 2010-13 he also played 96 games without absence only missing out on 20 minutes as he was rested for a brief spell at the end of a blowout win.

However, since 2019 and the diagnosis of his former teammate and good friend Rob Burrow with Motor Neurone Disease, Sinfield has seemed inhuman off the field as well.

He ran seven marathons in seven days in 2020, 101 miles in 24 hours in 2021 and will today conclude seven ultramarathons in seven days when he arrives at Old Trafford during the Rugby League World Cup Final between Samoa and Australia.

He has raised over a million once again with this challenge having set the target of £777,777.77.

In the eyes of many he isn’t just ‘Sir Kev’ but ‘Super Kev.’

However, a hilarious moment on BBC today proved that Sinfield is in fact human like the rest of us.

Whilst following him on his final ultramarathon with ‘Kev Cam’, Sinfield was quite rightly receiving plenty of praise for the things he puts his body through to raise money and awareness in the fight against MND.

That was until Sinfield and his fellow runners darted to the side in order to use the toilet as it was reducing those watching on to laughter.
