The BBC aired a photo of the wrong George Floyd during coverage of his funeral this week in Houston, Texas — mistakenly showing a living ex-New York Jets player, a report said.

The news outlet broadcast a photo of former Gang Green defensive back George Floyd, instead of the 46-year-old Minneapolis man whose death in police custody has sparked international protests, the Daily Mail reported.

“George Floyd was remembered as a champion basketball and football player,” the broadcaster correctly reported Monday before airing the image of the ex-Jets player in uniform.

The 59-year-old retired athlete played for two seasons for the Jets in 1982 and 1984, according to the National Football League.

The mix-up came as hundreds of mourners, including Floyd’s family, packed into the Fountain of Praise Church in Houston, wearing all white for the hours-long celebration of life.

The BBC didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.
