VIDEO: Robbie Williams gives middle finger at World Cup opening ceremony

Former Take That man flashes explicit gesture.


Robbie Williams gave the middle finger to camera during his performance at the World Cup opening ceremony in Russia.

In among a medley of old hits, the former Take That singer flashed the rude gesture in what may or may not have been a politically motivated stunt.

Kyle Walker was quick to joke about it being a reference to Dele Alli, who received a one-match ban for giving his old Spurs team-mate a one-fingered salute while playing for England.

So nice of Robbie to say hello to @dele_official ! pic.twitter.com/R5jWVeR73F
