An ABC presenter has been caught wearing a pair of shorts underneath the news desk as he reads a bulletin on one of Australia’s hottest days of the year.

The clip shows the young anchor appear to be dressed in a suit while reading a bulletin as the camera pans from the autocue to the news desk.

But as the camera pans further behind the desk it reveals Gubana is sporting a pair shorts alongside his formal attire.
‘When you have the news at seven but a barbecue at eight,’ the caption reads.
The post comes after parts of Australia suffered through a heatwave over the weekend.
Amused social media users were quick to comment on the post.
‘That should be a thing,’ wrote one person.
‘Because it is that humid, I did the same thing…’ commented another.
A combination of ‘exceptionally hot air mass’ and lack of cloud cover resulted in Australians suffering through a blistering weekend.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe weather warning for the heatwave in large swathes of Western Australia and Queensland and all of the Northern Territory.
Severe heatwave conditions brought ‘oppressive’ conditions to northern parts of Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland on Saturday.
The current heatwave is the fourth to hit the top end since October.
