They had one job.

Laughter erupted throughout the arena as the camera panned across the Australian Diamonds team who laughed off the obvious stuff-up before the anthem eventually played. 

The blunder even caught the attention of Peking Duk, who tweeted, "Surprised but extremely honoured to have our song Fire be the new national anthem of Australia. we are absolutely girt by happiness rn".

The Diamonds went on to win the match 60-55, so it was a happy ending in the end. Let's hope whoever was in charge of the sound also saw the funny side.
