Former Manchester United captain, world analyst, businessman and part-time politician – Gary Neville can do it all and has now tried his hand at a secret escape artist.
In scenes befitting Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, the Sky Sports star filmed Operation Exit The Bridge, managing to leave Chelsea’s win over West Ham unnoticed.
Surprisingly enough, he manages to remain undetected, having left the land of West London with his coat over his head and photographing himself with his phone – not quite incognito.
The Blues managed to grab all three points in a London derby that was generally a bit of a nap, with Christian Pulisic’s last-minute goal to seal the tie.
And now it turns out that most of the game’s entertainment came on the streets of West London, with Neville capturing his escape from Stamford Bridge in front of the camera.
The Bury-born defender has been one of the most recognizable faces in English football during a career brimming with iconic titles, and that has gone on to loot.
However, the only time anyone saw him on his way out of Chelsea was when he actually jumped on the back of a bike to make a rather fun getaway.
As he walked off the field covered in his jacket after the match, Neville had a camera on his face, declaring: “Trying to get out of Chelsea and West Ham, that’s what it looks like. A little fan cam.”

The Great Escape looked like it might be in trouble momentarily with the advent of Remote Support, as Neville made it clear that the task was already impossible after he retired from the game.
He said: “West Ham fans join us, baby, we’re blowing bubbles forever, there you go.”
“How do I escape a Premier League match, I wouldn’t have done this ten years ago, I think I would have been beaten.
“But you have to go with the people you didn’t. It’s always good to see the police.”
Then came the magical moment, as the 47-year-old jumped onto the back of a bicycle, only to be recognized just as he rode into the distance.
“At Chelsea you are always taken at Butchers Hook,” he revealed.
“Alan! Here’s my man, watch this!”
“And I’m far away, pretty eh? What a process. I like it, don’t I
“She’s dead here by the way too, she can’t do that everywhere.”
