“Steady on lads, I’m trying to Tweet here…”

Christian Benteke became the latest footballer to fall foul of the ever-present pre-written Tweet threat after scoring in Crystal Palace’s 4-0 drubbing of Hull City yesterday.

After sending the Tigers packing back to the second tier, Benteke took to social media to fart out the standard post-win banalities, though crucially forgot to fully disguise the fact that somebody else is doing all his talking for him.

Indeed, the Belgian striker failed to delete the word “caption” from the beginning of his personal and heartfelt post…

It wasn’t long before the ricket was amended on Instagram, but still…

Looks like old Christian has come down with an acute case of the Anichebe’s, for which there is sadly no known cure.
