In what will come as a big surprise to large swathes of the population, West Ham supporters have been named the wittiest in the country by a new survey.

The East London club supposedly earned this accolade when one of their chants was voted the funniest in the last ten years in a poll of football fans.

The Hammers' fans' chant about their former player Rio Ferdinand, in the wake of his suspension for missing a drugs test, saw off competition from other Premier League clubs such as Fulham and Newcastle.
