Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage has been the subject of mockery this afternoon after tweeting about a major announcement.

The Brexit figurehead told his followers that a major piece of news was on the way. So naturally, with this being transfer deadline day, he was inundated with football jokes.

Some suggested Farage should announce Arsenal's signing of Thomas Lemar, while others suggested Farage should tell the world he's signing for Arsenal himself - or replacing their beleaguered manager Arsene Wenger.

Then there were the predictable gags about him re-signing for Ukip, the party he led to prominence but has stuttered in his absence.

Critics will say it serves the veteran politician right for trying to hijack deadline day, although surely the suggestion that he's signing for Arsenal is a pretty brutal punishment.
