He siad: “I’ve interviewed you many times and I think you’ve had one of the all-time great careers as a boxer.
“If this really is the end, I just want to thank you on behalf of all the fans around the world and all the sports lovers for everything you’ve done because you’ve made us all proud.
“Particularly in this country, you’ve made us proud to be British and you’re just a great champion. So, thank you very much for everything that you’ve done.”
There was an awkward pause following the host’s compliments before the boxer was heard muttering: “He’s gone.”
Piers Morgan, with red face, followed up: “Oh, he’s gone. He didn’t hear my compliment!”
