Arsenal legend Ray Parlour had a poignant tribute for the Queen, necking a Cobra bomb in her honour after she passed away on Thursday.
Football has been postponed this weekend after Her Majesty died this week while there have been a long line of well-wishers for the Royal Family. As Charles ascends to the throne as this country's new king, perhaps the most touching came from Parlour.
The ex-Arsenal star tweeted a video on Saturday night: “[Cobra emoji and bomb emoji] for the Queen. Have a great weekend everyone and happy birthday if it’s yours x.”

“How is everyone, great weekend I hope you are having,” Parlour said to his followers. “Great night last night for myself in Worthing, I had a good time thanks to all the guys who turned up and had a really good time.
“Thanks to all you guys for taking me out as well, dancing in the street having a really good time. It was fantastic, that’s what it’s all about a little bit of spirit. But, it’s also a sad weekend because obviously of the passing of The Queen, unbelievable lady.
"What a legend she is, I was gutted that the Arsenal team went to see her in 2007, I had left the club. I would have loved to have met The Queen but didn’t get the opportunity to.
“What a lovely lady and it’s so sad, we are going to miss her dearly I promise you. So it’s got to be a Cobra bomb for The Queen, I am sure she didn’t drink Cobra bombs, she had a little tipple somewhere along the line but I don’t know what she usually drinks.
“But what a great, great lady she is and good luck to King Charles III now, so all the best Charles and hopefully all goes well, I am sure it will I am sure he is going to be a great king going forward, and pass it down to his sons in the end.”
Parlour then mixed the lethal concoction of a Cobra lager with Jagermeister before seeing it off in style. “I have got to do a Cobra bomb first, for The Queen,” the Romford Pele said.
“Even if she doesn’t like Cobra bombs I am sure she will be looking down hopefully and saying ‘Thanks Ray, really appreciate that’, so here we go and by the way it’s an absolute tribute that all the games were called off this weekend for The Queen.”
