Russell Brand, Gary Lineker re-enact Paul Gascoigne's tears at Italia 90

Comedian Russell Brand and Gary Lineker recreate Paul Gascoigne's tearful state from Italia 90.

Comedian Russell Brand and former England footballer Gary Lineker recreated Paul Gascoigne's tears from the 1990 World Cup in Italy when meeting up this week.

The pair posed for a photograph by re-enacting Lineker's signal to former England boss Bobby Robson, telling him that he needs to have a word with Gascoigne after he was handed a yellow card.

The booking meant that the ex-midfielder would have missed the final, but the Three Lions never got there as they succumbed to defeat against West Germany in the semi-final.

Brand, who supports West Ham United, met Lineker backstage at the comedian's 'Messiah Complex' tour in London and posted the photo on Twitter with the message: "Italia 90, my head's gone, I need the support of a mentor.
@GaryLineker #daftasabrush #MessiahComplex."
