Moments later, a male passerby, presumably from a car window: “Woooh, Mark McGowan, I f**king love you, buddy!”
Without skipping a beat, the message was translated, along with some enthusiastic gestures.
“That’s not the sort of language you normally hear in Rockingham,” McGowan eventually said after a giggle.
