Before his stunt on the pitch, the singer could be seen celebrating Luke Shaw’s goal two minutes in on social media.

Following his pitch invasion, Adam took to social media to brag about his stunt and describe the incident as “fun”.

Sharing a clip of himself running onto the pitch on his Instagram Stories, he wrote alongside it: “Well that was fun…”.

He added a series of crying with laughter emojis to the post which went out to his 42,000 followers.

At the end of the day…. I love my country and I did this all for a good time. Nothing but love and respect for England tonight. BIG LOVE PEOPLE Always."

Adam wore a red England shirt to the game and sported blonde locks.
