Tommy Fury had Soccer Aid viewers that he had ‘never watched football’ when he took part in the charity match on Sunday.

The former Love Island star, 25, threw the ball underarm after coming in as a sub part way through the game.

He started off by holding the ball above his head as he worked out where to throw it at the Stamford Bridge match.

But the younger brother of boxer Tyson Fury then, in a sudden movement, decided to  hold the ball below his waist and roll it in.

One fan wrote: ‘Look at the state of this throw in from Tommy Fury!’
