Sports Brief also reported on an interesting video of Heung Min Son and Bukayo Saka awkwardly sitting next to each other.

The two are both ambassadors of the luxury brand, and inevitably had to run into each other at the fashion event earlier this week.

In the front row of the catwalk, the two superstars were forced to sit next to each other, but unlike at footballing events, no niceties were exchanged between the pair.
