Paddy McGuinness Trolls Sir Mo Farah Leaving The Soccer Aid Team In Hysterics

When you have a look at the line-up for the Soccer Aid charity match, you can only imagine the banter that must go on at training.

With the likes of Paddy McGuinness, Gordon Ramsay, Freddie Flintoff, Jamie Redknapp and many others, the laughs would be off the Richter scale and we've been given a fly on the wall look at one of their pranks on each other.


Funny man Paddy McGuinness comes down the walkway carrying three cups which he pretends are full of energy drinks.

The Take Me Out host fakes a fall and throws the empty cups over Olympian Sir Mo Farah - much to his shock.

Paddy goes absolutely bonkers that his well planned skit landed and looked like he was going to pop a blood vessel while doing Farah's signature Mobot.

The video was uploaded to Freddie Flintoff's Instagram, where it's been viewed more than 150,000 times.

Mo Farah doesn't only need to worry about the off-field antics because a fellow Olympian has marked him as the man to watch.

Usain Bolt is on the World XI and when asked by Radio Times about who he's keeping his eye on, he said: "Sir Mo Farah. We have known each other for many years. I don't know how good he is on the ball but I know he will be able to run all day... and night... and day."

The sprinter will be joined by Yaya Toure, Brendan Cole, Kevin Pietersen, Dan Carter, Gordon Ramsay, Martin Compston, Eric Cantona, Ashley Fongho, Robert Pires, Robbie Keane, Ioan Gruffudd and Hayden Christensen.

Bolt added: "I know I have the speed and am working on my skills and tactics. We will take it seriously but it's going to be a lot of fun. I'm told Gordon Ramsay can get stuck in so I'm sure it will be a great game.

"I love competing in front of a big crowd. But most of all I love the fact that this game will make a real difference to thousands of children around the world. I'm the captain of the World XI team and I will be motivating my team to win."

The Soccer Aid match gets underway at 8pm in the UK, with the money raised going to Unicef who help children around the world. Over the past decade, more than £24 million has been generated.
