Louis Tomlinson has been hailed after the singer left Glastonbury to purchase a telly and bring it back to site that fans could watch the England vs Slovakia game.

A shaky England side won in the Euro 2024 round of 16, thanks to Jude Bellingham’s overhead kick in the 95th minute and captain Harry Kane’s winner in added time.

But after it was announced that Glastonbury wouldn’t be showing the football, former One Direction star Tomlinson took matters into his own hands.

As The Guardian reports, Tomlinson left the festival this morning to purchase a generator, a telly on wheels and a WiFi dongle from Argos that would allow connectivity to watch the game.

“Luckily we got the win,” he told the BBC after the game. “We pulled it off.”

Tomlinson is no stranger to the festival, having been spotted as a frequent attendee in recent years.

Glastonbury concludes tonight with a headline slot from SZA, while Shania Twain took to the Pyramid Stage for the customary legends slot.

The festival kicked off on Friday with a pop masterclass from Dua Lipa, while last night saw Coldplay headline for a record breaking fifth occasion.
