First Kanye, now Sepp: comedian Lee Nelson has a thing for showing up the world's most arrogant men.

Sepp Blatter's first official press conference since announcing he would be stepping down as Fifa president was interrupted by the British comedian - real name Simon Brodkin - who walked in front of the beleaguered boss of world football's governing body before throwing a wad of fake cash into the air.

Nelson was quickly escorted away by security staff while Blatter rose from his seat saying, "This has nothing to do with football".

Back in June, Nelson invade the stage during Kanye West’s headline slot at Glastonbury, stating afterwards that he wanted to "give him a hand".

Brodkin, 38, ran onstage wearing a "Lee-zus" T-shirt and carrying a mic during "Black Skinhead", the fourth song of West’s set, forcing the rapper to restart the track.
