Watch ITV racing star Oli Bell dazzle punters with football skills in suit and smart shoes before England vs Italy

ITV racing presenter Oli Bell blew away punters with his football skills ahead of England vs Italy.

And one even joked ‘has Gareth got your number?’ after the TV host did flawless keepy-ups in a suit and smart shoes.

Viewers were impressed Bell managed to do 30 seconds of keepy-ups in a suit and smart shoes
Bell even had one punter asking if England manager Southgate had his number ahead of the Euro 2020 final

Bell was introducing The Opening Show on ITV4 alongside Frankie Dettori – who went nuts at Wembley when Italy beat Spain in the Euro 2020 semi-final.

And though he had to go full circle to keep it going, Bell reeled off more than 30 seconds of uninterrupted kick-ups at Newmarket.

Bell is more used to banging in winners in the betting markets than in the back of the net.

But a keen lover of all sports, he had punters purring over his skills – all in one take as well.

One stunned viewer said: “The tekkers! Sign him up.”

Another posted: “@olibellracing has got a bit fair play fella.”

One comment read: “In shoes as well, not easy.”

A fellow Twitter user, joking about England vs Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, said: “Late sub for tomorrow night.”

Bell is one of the stars of ITV racing coverage

Another said: “Has Gareth got your number?”

Oli’s fellow ITV racing presenter Ed Chamberlin said: “Decent.”

And the man himself tweeted: “For those asking it was actually the first take. I don’t really know how!”

Bell is part of the strong ITV racing team, and often hosts the ‘social stable’ with former Love Island star Chris Hughes.

The racing expert used to date co-star Francesca Cumani – and was even once labelled a ‘lunatic’ by The Queen.
