World Cup: 'Wrong' Phil Neville gets fan abuse

A radiator salesman called Phil Neville has received hundreds of abusive tweets intended for his footballer namesake.

Mr Neville, from Hadleigh in Suffolk, was bombarded with Twitter messages by World Cup fans unhappy with the ex-England player's TV commentary for the BBC on Saturday.

The punditry was widely criticised for being boring.

He told BBC Suffolk's Etholle George there was "a lot of abusive language", but now thinks the incident may actually be good for business.
