ABC’s breakfast sports presenter Tony Armstrong shocked viewers this morning after debuting a fresh look to say goodbye to his iconic mustache and long hair.
Former Collingwood football player Armstrong became one of the country’s most beloved presenters after a petition was filed last month for his next bachelor’s degree.
This morning, viewers of ABC’s breakfast show were stunned to see his new look, and many used social media to express their reaction.
Armstrong explained that the new look was inspired by a text message from his mother.
“She sent me a text (saying),” If you shave your face and have a haircut, you’ll feel much better at me “and I’m like” OK ” I did, “he said.
One asked where his “nice lock” disappeared, and another joked that the new sport presented sounded like Armstrong but didn’t look like him.
Armstrong has played for Adelaide, Sydney Swans and Collingwood in his eight-year AFL career.
He turned to journalism after his career and joined ABC later that year after hosting the first season of NITV’s Yokayi Footy in 2020.
