At the opening ceremony of the world cup Robbie Williams made a rude hand gesture at the camera. Robbie was singing at the ceremony. He claimed that he was indicating there was only one minute till kick off when he raised his middle finger. But he was embarrassed. “At these things it’s really important not to cause an international incident,” Williams said. “And do you know what? I managed it.” Brazil legend Ronaldo was at the ceremony too. Later, Kyle Walker posted “nice of Robbie to say hello to Alli. ” This was a reference to Alli’s hand gesture on England’s 2-1 win against Slovakia.
