Robbie Williams has revealed that he gave one of his Brit Awards to Wayne Rooney.

The singer has recently been named a Brits Icon, after winning 17 awards.

However instead of keeping the awards, he has given them away.

He told the Radio Times magazine: "Dad's got one, my mum's got a couple, Wayne Rooney's got one.

"I was stoned and Wayne got injured in a match, and I shouted to my manager (in a slurred voice) 'Michael, will you send a Brit to Wayne Rooney, tell him to get better from me...'"

He added: "He sent me a pair of signed football boots. So, good deal!"
