Howard Webb has refereed a World Cup final and has been for several years one of the Premier League's most trusted officials. Now we learn that he can also pull off a good photobomb to boot.

Manchester City tweeted out the picture, taken before their team took on West Ham United in the League Cup semi-final first leg.

No doubt it was easy for City to be jovial after thumping the Hammers 6-0, a result which makes the second leg of the tie all but moot.
