Weatherman Owain Wyn Evans is back on the drums, this time for Match of the Day as football returns

Weatherman Owain Wyn Evans, who went viral with his drumming rendition of the BBC news music, has released a rendition of the infamous Match of the Day theme tune in collaboration with journalist Steve Rosenberg.

In celebration of the return of the Premier League a video of the two was released in which Evans plays the drums accompanied by the BBC News Moscow journalist on the piano, both from their respective homes.

Evans first went viral in April when he posted a video of himself presenting the forecast from home before sprinting to his drum kit to play along with the closing music.

At the time he tweeted: "When they said try working from home I didn’t realise they’d expect me to do the music too."

Fans were again impressed by his drumming skills and hailed the new collaboration.

One Twitter user wrote: “Love it. What a great start to return of Premier League matches and MOTD," while another added: “fabulous as ever dahling".
