Jeremy Corbyn received some endorsement from an unexpected source at the home of his football club Arsenal yesterday.

As the Labour leader stood outside the Emirates Stadium in north London, wearing his red-and-white club scarf, a supporter of rival team Spurs approached him.

Despite the two teams being about to clash in the Arsenal vs Tottenham derby, the Spurs fan had nothing but warm words for Mr Corbyn.

"I'm a Spurs fan Mr Corbyn," the man said, shaking Corbyn's hand sincerely, and adding, "You've got to be our Prime Minister."

He then leaned in further and said emphatically, "You have to be".

"Even for a Spurs supporter?" Corbyn asked in seeming amusement.

"Definitely," the man replied.
