Brand lands smacker on Sam

Comedian Russell Brand crashed Sam Allardyce’s post-match press conference to repeatedly kiss the cheek of the West Ham manager.

Brand, a West Ham fan, interrupted Allardyce’s interview with Match of the Day to congratulate him on his side’s 2-1 win over Manchester City.

“Yes Sam, yes Sam! Give the man the credit he deserves!” Brand said.

“I’ve made it now,” Allardyce replied. “That’s never happened before.”
