Peter Crouch wins Twitter yet again with brilliant holiday photo

I am glad to inform you that your favourite gargantuan roboting footballer is at it again. 

Fresh from joining the likes of Alan Shearer, Frank Lampard, Teddy Sheringham and Thierry Henry in the Premier League 100 club, Peter Crouch is currently enjoying a summer holiday in Sardinia. 

As you should know by now, the Stoke City striker is an accomplished piss-taker, particularly when the punchline of the joke is himself. 

And so, let’s all just appreciate (as over 233k people on Twitter already have) this photo of 6’7” Peter Crouch stood next to some also notably large giraffes, which he captioned: “summer for me is about time with family.” 

It went down well. So well that Ian Wright managed to break his emoji keyboard.

Of course, this isn’t the first time ol’ Crouchie has made a strong case for the title of funniest footballer. We had a quick scour of his greatest collection.

There was the now infamous Ballon d'Or tweet.

The time he met up with jockey Nathan Alison. 

Or when he spotted the unmistakeable similarity between his celebration and that of one Cristiano Ronaldo. 

And a personal favourite: when he responded to this tweet about FIFA. 


And of course, there was the time he was asked what he’d be if he wasn’t a professional footballer, and he replied: “A virgin”.

What a man. What a great, tall man.
