The iPhone's Siri function was an innocent bystander during one of the British & Irish Lions team meetings on the summer tour of New Zealand.

During one of Lions assistant Andy Farrell's addresses to the squad, the voice recognition app asked Farrell to repeat his message to the group, and without missing a beat, the defence coach immediately repeated his original instruction.

"So far, I've had six guys come up to me to do a little extra. Just five minutes that's all," said Farrell before Siri responded with: "Sorry, I'm not sure what you said."

Farrell then repeated: "I said six guys come up to me."

The clip is part of an upcoming documentary titled 'LIONS UNCOVERED: Like you have never seen or heard before'.

The behind the scenes film includes over two hours of unseen footage with unrestricted access to every meeting and training session, where players also wore microphones for the first time.

The film is available to pre-order now and on general sale on DVD and download on November 13.
