There have been a few embarrassing moments during lockdown as many people around the world conduct meetings via video conference calls. 

From children running into a makeshift office in the dining room to pets making cameo appearances in videos, anything can happen during a Zoom or Teams call. 

2016 Formula 1 champion had a taste of that during Sunday night's Challenge Heineken Legends race. The virtual race featured former F1 driver David Coulthard and Brazilian football legend Roberto Carlos and Dutch racing Robert Doornbos. 

But it was Vivian Rosberg who caused a stir early on when the 30-year-old walked into the camera shot wearing a gown. Rosberg was alerted and promptly said: "Baby, baby, you're on the live (stream) global, 100-million people."

Rosberg had a big laugh and so did the other competitors. Ferrari's Charles Leclerc had a funny moment via live stream this weekend too, his girlfriend Charlotte Sine was racing on F1 2019 in place of him. 

Leclerc paused his Call of Duty game on Twitch to watch Sine who got up to P2 and then crashed into none other than his current team mate Sebastian Vettel.
