John Barnes wowed Liverpool fans with an impromptu rendition of his famous World In Motion 1990 hit on the Tube on Saturday night.
The Anfield legend was on the London Underground system with supporters following Liverpool’s 4-0 thrashing of Barcelona at Wembley.
Asked to sing the 1990 classic, in which he collaborated with New Order for England’s World Cup song that summer, Barnes flawlessly rapped his segment and even continued singing as the tube reached his stop-off station.
The former Liverpool winger, 52, was accompanied by delighted supporters in his rendition of the song, which was filmed on one user’s mobile phone and uploaded to Twitter.

Another former Liverpool star, Jamie Carragher, was among those who retweeted Barnes’ rap as it spread across social media, describing his fellow ex-England player as a “legend”.

Barnes is widely regarded as one of Liverpool’s greatest-ever players for his decade at the club from 1987-1997 in which he spearheaded the team to two league titles, two FA Cups and a League Cup, and twice won the Player of the Year award.
