Former Sutton United reserve goalkeeper Wayne Shaw ate meat pies on the sideline during a game against Arsenal as a means of winding up the Arsenal fan base.

The online gambling site Sun Bets was offering odds of 8-1 that Shaw would be filmed eating the meat pies and that’s exactly what happened.  Shaw has since resigned from Sutton after it was revealed that the Football Association and Gambling Commission commenced an investigation into the incident.

"The Arsenal fans were constantly singing about me, and shouting 'Who ate all the pies?'," Shaw, who weighs 146kg, told the tabloid Sun newspaper.  That paper owns the gambling site that offered the 8-1 odds.

"There was a lot of banter, and I thought I could have a bit of fun here. I took a big bite and waved it in the air towards them, but it was all in good spirit.

"It didn't cost me anything from the girl at the counter - apart from my job."
