Comedian Russell Brand is a well known West Ham fan, in the crowd at a large amount of games at Upton Park.

He would also appear to have an access-all-areas pass after making his way down to where Hammers boss Sam Allardyce was conducting his post-match interview.

Allardyce was conducting his interview after a hugely impressive 2-1 win over the defending champions Manchester City, thanks to goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Diafra Sakho; the striker's seven in seven matches.

But Brand made his way to the mixed zone, crashed the interview by grabbing Allardyce mid-sentence before planting a big kiss on his cheek.

He is then said to have made his way to the home team's dressing room.

Allardyce told BT Sport: "It wasn't a lucky victory by any stretch of the imagination today because our commitment and desire to play against the big boys and the present league champions was there for all to see.

"We knew we were going to have less possession than City today but we knew that we had to be effective with the possession we had and we were certainly that.

"After David Silva scored their outstanding goal, for me it was about the squad's determination and make sure (of) what is a famous victory for us."
