Monkey Football

Anyone remember monkey tennis, Alan Partridge’s desperate attempt to keep his drowning TV career afloat? By the looks of these pictures the dozy Norfolk DJ should have pitched monkey football instead.

And before we bombard you with a selection of risible monkeys-playing-football jokes (how about, ‘ah, a normal Saturday afternoon down the Bridge then’?), first some facts.

These super cute creatures are Bolivian squirrel monkeys and they can be found at London Zoo, where there are currently 22 of the blighters - indeed, enough for a full game.

By the looks of things, the monkey in picture three above could already teach new Arsenal striker Gervinho a thing or two about diving. Arf, arf.
