His name is Earle

Former Wimbledon player Robbie Earle is set to be dumped as an official ambassador for England’s 2018 World Cup bid after being caught passing complimentary tickets onto a third party. The news comes after Earl was sacked by ITV from his position as a studio pundit during the World Cup.

Earle was sacked by the network after tickets meant for his friends and family ended up in the hands of Bavaria Beer, who launched a publicity stunt with Dutch models, who were wearing orange dresses with their logo all over them. If in the upcoming investigation Earl is found to have broken Fifa regulations by passing on his tickets to a third party then he will be dropped by the group.

For his part Earle says that he has‘not profited in any way from these tickets... Call me naive but I didn't think I was doing anything wrong. I hope when people hear the full story they will see me in a different light.’
