When he was setting Premier League goalscoring records and becoming the most expensive player in the world during the mid-nineties, Alan Shearer was extremely entertaining. But since becoming a pundit on Match of the Day — where his role is to describe a goal going in over a replay with absolutely no regard for analysis — the Geordie hero has not been quite so captivating.
Thankfully, Super Al has shown that he is still a born entertainer, by getting on the mic during a karaoke night at a luxury Northumberland hotel to belt out a rendition of Lionel Richie's 'All Night Long'.
Wearing his standard MOTD open-neck shirt uniform (which he also sleeps and bathes in) Shearer gives a pretty good performance of the 1983 classic, save for a slightly wobbly middle eight.
The former Newcastle striker is no stranger to the karaoke stage, as he was caught on film performing 'Sex on Fire' by the Kings of Leon back in March...
Because everyone likes to be told that their sex is on fire by a 43-year-old bald man in a bar.
