Far be it for me to offer up any kind of personal opinions here, but the phrase ‘he seemed pleased to meet them’ appears to have become a pretty common response.

As did questions of just what the hell was going on.

“Please tell me it’s his phone.”
“Waiting for your verdict on our Erect Dier.”

Even Spurs teammate Jan Vertoghen got involved, offering up.

“You look VERY happy to see them.”

Fans on Twitter didn’t miss a trick either.

Sometimes I do worry about what I find humorous in life especially as I might not view the image used here in the same light ever again.
