Karl Stefanovic has offered some cheeky advice to AFL star Patrick Cripps, who looked a little worse during an early morning live TV interview.
The Carlton skipper admitted he had enjoyed a late night out celebrating being named the Brownlow Medalist of 2022 on Sunday night.
A visibly tired Cripps seemed to struggle to keep his eyes open as he spoke of the huge honor early Monday morning on the Today Show.
Stefanovic couldn’t resist the chance to call out the dusty looking Cripps.

“I just wanted to say, Crippsy, well done my friend. We have followed you very closely this year. You had a great year,” Stefanovic said.
“If you’re staying in Crown and going to an awards ceremony that night, I’ll advise you one thing. Just be careful not to let your eyes go into the villa when you come down to do the cross.’
Cripps smiled at the advice when Stefanovic and co-host Allison Langdon burst out laughing.
“My eyes, once I’ve had two beers, I’m done,” he said. “You can probably tell I left my eyes on the counter for good last night.”
Sports presenter Alex Cullen had asked Cripps a little earlier if he had been able to sleep much between Sunday night and Monday morning.
“You can’t see much if you look at my eyes,” Cripps replied. “I’m screaming for a little sleep now.
‘No, you have to do it. It’s all worth it if you win the Brownlow. I have to keep plopping for the next few hours, then I’ll be on the pillow pretty soon.’
The Carlton captain said it was a huge honor to be named the 2022 Brownlow Medalist.

Cripps nearly failed to qualify for the AFL’s best and fairest award after receiving a two-game suspension for an incident in which Lions utility Callum Ah Chee suffered a concussion during the Gabba in Round 21.
The star midfielder failed to overturn the suspension for rude behavior at the AFL tribunal, but had better luck when he appeared before the appeals committee two days later.
At a marathon hearing almost Friday morning, the 27-year-old was released to play in the Blues’ crunch clash with Melbourne.
“I always prepared as if I would play no matter what the situation,” Cripps said on Sunday.
“Just prepare like you’re going to play and if it doesn’t happen, it won’t happen, but when it happens, you go out and perform.
I’m a big one that once you cross that white line you put yourself out there and you’re willing to play your best.”
