West Ham co-Chairman David Gold has been left furious after a Carlton Cole parody account made him out to be a suspect in the Madeleine McCann case.
The account, which has since been deleted, produced a picture that saw Gold's face superimposed onto a newspaper front page with a 'Face of Maddie Suspect' headline.
Gold responded on Twitter, saying: "I have removed the picture. You are a disgrace and completely out of order. This is not funny or banter."
It is unclear whether Gold thought this was the real account of the West Ham striker.

A number of users on the website believed it was really Cole, with some commenting that the striker should be sold from the club immediately.
