Gary Lineker Denies Glastonbury Flag Claim That He 'Shags Crisps'
Gary Lineker is a modern day legend, in fact scrap that, he's a national treasure. He's the last Englishman to play for Barcelona, he won the golden boot at the 1986 World Cup, and now hosts the staple of any Saturday night, Match Of The Day.
He, like any celebrity, he has not led a life without controversy and the big question still remains. Does Gary Lineker shag crisps?
The conundrum was first posed at Glastonbury festival last year when a huge flag went viral.
It was plain white, with black lettering, and simply said: 'Gary Lineker shags crisps' - all in capitals for the world to see.
One 18-year-old even got a tattoo around his nipple of the same saying.
The young fella got the tattoo after originally agreeing to get it done if Southampton beat Manchester United in a match, however, after a fair few of pints he decided to get it done anyway.
Joe himself wasn't planning to tell his parents about the tattoo until it had been removed, and called it the 'stupidest thing' he'd ever done.
So, viral it has gone - it's been brought back up in Gary Lineker's recent interview with OK! Magazine. He said: "There was a big banner at Glastonbury once saying, 'Gary Linker shags crisps'."

"But honestly I don't," he added. Thanks for clearing that up, Gary.
Having said that, he had obviously given the idea some thought, as he soon followed up with: "I think they'd just crumble anyway."
He didn't make any comment about Joe's tattoo however.
As Lineker begins his season wind-down, and can put his feet up for a football-less summer, Glastonbury itself is only starting the prepare the build-up.
The headline acts were announced a couple of months ago, with Foo Fighters playing the Friday, Radiohead on Saturday, before Ed Sheeran closes the show on the Sunday.
Flags will still be present at the main stage and around the site at Worthy Farm, Somerset, but flares and other pyrotechnics have been banned.
The festival this year will take place from 21-25 June with over 100,000 visitors snapping up their tickets in less than an hour when they went on sale last October.
