See the photos of the Jason Bent England plane stunt by comedian Lee Nelson’s character as he attempted to join the team for their departure to Brazil 2014.

Comic Simon Brodkin, better known as Lee Nelson, was dragged away by police after his Premier League persona donned a national team suit and attempted to blend in with the players as they arrived at Luton airport.

Mingling with the squad while they waited for their luggage to be unloaded from the team bus, his intrusion appeared to be spotted first by captain Steven Gerrard.

Security staff and officers then hauled him away.

Most of the players appeared to be left unamused by the incident as they apparently looked on stony-faced, although a few can be seen managing to raise a smile.

Brodkin was reportedly “spoken to by a police officer before leaving the area”.

The character quickly reported back to Twitter:

Gutted Roy wouldn't let me on the plane to Brazil. I don't know what to tell the Malaysian betting syndicate now… pic.twitter.com/uw620rFDUK

To be fair to Lee Nelson, he lasted longer pretending to be an England player than pretending to be a comedian pic.twitter.com/1gr9pg4Ay8
