FORMER Sky Sports pundit Chris Kamara left football fans in the lurch after he photoshopped himself outside Downing Street in the wake of Tuesday night’s political chaos.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson desperately clung to the number 10 after Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid resigned from his cabinet.
The news sent social media into a frenzy, with the whole country reacting to the chaotic news.
And Kamara – who is famous for missing a sending off during football Saturday coverage and saying “I don’t know Jeff” when presenter Jeff Stelling asked what happened – has also joined in the action.
He accepted Twitter sharing a snap of him on that fateful day, but off Downing Street rather than Fratton Park.
Alongside the picture, he added the caption: “‘What’s happening Kammy’ 😳🤷🏽♂️ I don’t know Jeff 😂🤣.”
Stelling then responded to the post, saying: “Kammy uses your fingers and toes and counts how many allies he has left.
“Not a question to ask @NadineDorries tbh!!”
And Kammy’s post caused fits of laughter on social media as it lived up to his reputation as one of the funniest characters in football.
Adding to the comparison between Kammy’s famous misadventure and the Downing Street carnage, one user continued: “Jeff Stelling: ‘Kammy we have just heard that Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid have resigned from Government’.

“Kammy: ‘Yes, I saw them coming out, but I thought they wanted a drink, Jeff’.”
While another said: “Incredible Kammy you just won Twitter tonight 🤣🤣.”
And a third added: “The only thing funnier than that is the original footage from Fratton Park 😂. By far the best tweet of 2022 👏.”
Kamara, 64, confirmed back in April that he would be leaving Sky Sports at the end of the 2021/22 season after 24 years with the company.
Confirming his departure, Kamara said: “My long career at Sky Sports has never felt like work. I spent 24 great years at Sky and leave with the best memories.
“My time at Soccer AM, Goals on Sunday and of course Soccer Saturday with Jeff has been incredible to say the least.
“I’ve had the time of my life and look forward to tuning in as a fan every Saturday.”
The news came shortly after it was revealed he had been battling a speech disorder called apraxia of speech.
It is a condition that makes speaking difficult as sufferers know what they want to say but have difficulty communicating their words.
