Poor Karl Stefanovic was not feeling too fresh this morning, having to leave The Today Show within the first hour of broadcasting due to illness.
Karl was coughing and sneezing throughout the entire morning, but it wasn’t until the show returned from a weather report that Georgie gave him permission to leave.
“You presented me with a sick note a little earlier, and I've a good read, and I think I might give you permission to go home.”
“Have a happy weekend everyone. I’m taking an early mark," Karl farewelled before doing an impression of a little boy saying "I don’t want to go. I don’t want to go to school, Mummy."
Get well soon!
