Football Corbyn and Bellerin unite to ignore Piers Morgan

SOCIAL media was left delighted yesterday after finding out Piers Morgan was left red-faced by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin last week.

In a recent column, Morgan detailed his evening at the latest GQ Men of the Year awards in which he was seated on a table with Bellerin.

At one point during the evening, Corbyn and Bellerin were talking when Morgan “tried to interrupt the Labour leader,” only for the pair to continue in Spanish in order to “shut me out of the conversation.”

A tweet bought the column and conversation to light yesterday, to which Bellerin responded: “Come on mate, don’t take it personally.”

In what must have felt like deja-vu for Morgan, lifelong Arsenal fan Corbyn and Bellerin had another conversation on Twitter in Spanish.

Corbyn said to Bellerin: “It was a pleasure to meet you. It is better to not say it what we were talking about, you would not understand it. Very good game in the match on Sunday.”
