ONCE imagined, this can never be unseen – Theo Walcott and Gareth bale used to run around with their pants on their head attacking teammates.
While together at Southampton, the now-London-based rivals were once a deadly duo named the ‘underwear bandits’.
In an interview, Walcott confessed: “We’d call ourselves the underwear bandits.
“I have no idea where it came from, but if you were in your room watching a film and someone burst in with their boxers on their head, you knew you were in trouble.
“Sometimes it wasn’t even pillows – it was shoes and stuff like that.
“Luckily I was always quite quick, so I tended to get away with it.”
