During his apprenticeship at Newcastle United, he was given the responsibility of cleaning Kevin Keegan’s boots, keen to impress his mates, he took the boots home to show them off, but left them on the Newcastle Underground.

Paired best friend Jimmy ‘Five Bellies’ Gardner with a girl, but it was later discovered that ‘she’ was a transvestite - which of course Gazza knew all along!!  

When asked by a nurse what his nationality was before an operation, he replied: "Church Of England."  

Gazza once paid 1000 for a robot, which he set up so it would travel into Jimmy Five Bellies’ room at Gazza’s mansion and say: "Make a cup of tea, fat man."

While staying in a New Zealand hotel, he was told there was no bacon for breakfast. On hearing this he replied: "What, all the sheep in this country and there’s no bloody bacon!"

Greeted reporters in Rome by standing up, asking for silence, then farting at ear-splitting volume.

On his first night in Rome after signing for Lazio, gave his minder the slip, put his shoes by an open window and hid in a cupboard. The minder thought he’d committed suicide.

Crashed Middlesbrough’s team bus at the club’s training ground and caused thousands of pounds worth of damage.

Took a documentary team to a beautiful Scottish cottage which he informed them was his new place, Pretended he’d forgotten his key and knocked instead. When the door opened, told the befuddled housewife that he was doing a telly advert and wanted to know if she preferred Daz or Omo.

Walked into the Middlesbrough canteen and ordered lunch wearing nothing but his training socks.  

One hour after playing for England, met ‘showbiz pals’ Danny Baker and Chris Evans in a Hampstead pub while still wearing his full kit... boots included.

On a trip to London, jumped out of his car to demand "a go" on a workman’s pneumatic drill. After getting the go-ahead, happily pounded the pavement to the amusement of shoppers.

Booked a series of sun-bed sessions for then-Newcastle team-mate Tony Cunningham, Who of course, is black!!

Turned up for England training the morning after then-manager Bobby Robson had called him "daft as a brush" with a floor brush sticking out of his socks.

When asked for a footballing comment while at Lazio, he belched into a TV microphone - he was fined 9000.

Sent a rose to the Wimbledon dressing room for Vinnie Jones after the infamous ball-squeezing incident. Got a toilet brush in return.

Has taken the mickey out of refs constantly during his career. On one occasion he sniffed a hapless ref’s armpit while he was holding his hand high to signal a free kick.

Undeterred by their frosty reactions, Gazza again tried to prove that refs have a sense of humour by yellow-carding the referee after the official had dropped his card during a Rangers v Hibs game. He was booked for his troubles.  

As an apprentice desperate to impress then-Newcastle boss Jack Charlton, spent a week’s money on fishing gear and begged the famous angler to give him a lesson. On arrival at the riverbank, Charlton promptly threw all but the rod out into the water, then poured a bottle of Newcastle Brown into the water, dipped in the rod and within seconds was pulling out a whopper -lesson over!!

Ever the practical joker, Gazza once replaced best pal Jimmy ‘five bellies’ Gardiner’s hair gel with hair removing cream.  

On meeting the president of Denmark’s FA, pretended he could speak Danish. When invited to demonstrate, imitated The Muppet Show’s Swedish Chef!!

Pulled England teammate Paul Ince’s shorts down during an open training session. Ince’s backside ended up all over the papers!
