Nine sports reporter Tony Jones injured in risky charity stunt: Presenter is left bruised after diving into a water tank even though he can’t swim

Sports reporter Tony Jones required medical care after he took part in a stunt for charity that required him to dive into an underwater tank on Thursday.

The Sunday Footy Show host, who can’t swim, dived in the tank to raise money for the children’s cancer charity My Room.

Jones, 60, needed to be assisted by his colleague Nathan Brown, who jumped into the water fully clothed and helped him do his final duck dive.

Each dive to the bottom of the pool would add more money to the donation tally of the My Room telethon.

Following the stunt, Jones needed a ladder to get out of the water. It was then revealed he’d gashed his foot while repeatedly diving.

He was treated by on-set medical staff who assessed his injury and bandaged him.

Meanwhile, other stunts saw sports journalist Damian Barrett do a ‘shoey’, which involves drinking beer out of a shoe, from commentator Kane Cornes’ sneaker.

The charity event came before the AFL Grand Final that saw the Geelong Cats defeat the Sydney Swans in a highly anticipated premiership showdown. 

Last weekend, Jones lashed out at the AFL after learning he had not been invited to the Brownlow Medal ceremony.

He had the spray live on the Sunday Footy Show after realising he had been denied entry for the first time in 32 years.

‘If the AFL is watching, you can get stuffed, it’s a crap night,’ he snapped, to laughter from his co-stars. 

His colleague Barrett explained he had received his invitation several weeks prior.
