PREMIER LEAGUE ref Michael Oliver was spotted singing along to England chants as the Three Lions lost the Euro 2020 final to Italy on Sunday night.
The 36-year-old was filmed clapping and singing along at Wembley and he also posed for pictures with fans inside the stadium.
Oliver is considered to be one of the best refs in England.
And although officials are not always the most popular people in the land, Oliver showed he is just like the rest of us in footage that has surfaced online.
Northumberland born Oliver officiated at several Euro 2020 group games as well as Spain's quarter-final win over Switzerland.
But he was back in his homeland for the final and was seen getting into the swing of things.
A video clip showed him singing 'Freed from Desire' as it played over the tannoy system.
The respected ref also posed for photos with fans inside the stadium as England drew 1-1 only to lose on penalties.
Born in Ashington, Northumberland, Oliver began refereeing at the age of 14 after being introduced to it by his father.
By 2007 he became the youngest referee to officiate at Wembley stadium when he whistled the Conference National play-off final.
