On an episode of The Harry Redknapp Show podcast last month, Rod said: ‘I’ve just had a full knee replacement and I’ve also had an ankle fusion – all thanks to football.

‘I like to box on the big bag in my gym, but after a gig these days I’ll order four of five bottles of red wine a bottle of Bacardi, it’s mostly for the band. They always come back to my dressing room for a celebration after every gig.’

Despite reducing his alcohol intake, Rod admitted to getting ‘p****d’ at Buckingham Palace when he received his knighthood in 2016.

‘The Queen asked me how Will had done, saying ‘did he make a good job of it?’ I said ‘yeah’. I’m definitely a Royalist for sure.’
