Naturally, there are some famous faces at the hotly anticipated Euro 2020 final between England and Italy. These include former England legends, such as David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and Sir Geoff Hurst, and the usual political guests, such as Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Italy’s president, Sergio Mattarella.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also there with their son, Prince George. The duchess made a quick dash across from Wimbledon where she watched the men’s wheelchair singles final.

But it was two more unlikely names on the guest list that sent Twitter into hysterics: world-renowned British supermodel Kate Moss and US actor Tom Cruise.

Cruise had also been Wimbledon for the men’s final today, so would have been in a race against time to get across London to secure his seat at Wembley Stadium.

Some admired Cruise’s ‘Mission Impossible’ style tactics (and made some appropriate jokes) – while others highlighted how the ticket ballot miraculously worked in Cruise’s favour.

One suggested he had hot-footed it over to north west London in the tiny car that delivers the ball at the start of the game.

Someone else was intrigued by how the actor keeps up his appearance at 59, but more importantly, wanted to know how he got so lucky in securing tickets for not one – but two – sporting events on the same day.

For many people, it was the way the announcement was made that was so hilarious. The guest list read: ‘Tom Cruise, Kate Moss… and many other sporting legends.’

Others joked about Moss’ legendary football career...

We just hope they enjoyed themselves.
