Tony Armstrong reveals he was more worried about messing up the AFL than on TV


ABC News Breakfast’s newly adored sports anchor Tony Armstrong let his personality shine through during a broadcast on Stellar magazine this week.

The AFL star, 32, has opened up about his transition from the pitch to TV, saying he doesn’t feel as nervous on screen because “we’re just on TV talking shit “.

He said in the issue, which will be published on Sunday, that he “didn’t realize the seriousness of what I was doing, but it took the pressure off.”

Tony continued: “When I was playing sports I was uncertain and I was insecure. I probably didn’t have that confidence in myself to be good enough.

“When you want something so badly and you try so hard, maybe you put it off a bit. What I do now, I know I’m good enough.

“But I also don’t think too much about anything if it goes wrong. In fact, I lean on it. I like when things go wrong. Because we don’t save lives. We’re just on TV talking shit.

The interview will be printed alongside a photoshoot, shot by photographer Steven Chee, which features Tony dressed to impress as he showcases his goofy personality.

The former AFL player took part in a misguided segment in which he attempted to learn Irish dancing ahead of the Eireborne national tour.

As Tony brawled on set, fellow actor Michael Rowland said he “won’t be happy until I see Tony Armstrong do one of those high kicks”.

Tony then performed a spectacular kick past the crew, before stumbling onto the set as the hosts laughed and clapped in amazement as he joked about his hamstring injury.
