Lancashire Telegraph: Robbie Savage and his wife Robbie Savage and his wife

FORMER Blackburn Rovers footballer Robbie Savage nearly missed his flight to Brazil for the World Cup after accidentally picking up his wife's passport.

Savage only realised his mistake when he arrived at the airport to check-in for his flight to Rio.

Luckily his passport was rushed to the airport and the former midfielder thanked airline staff for helping him make the flight.

He tweeted : “Wow thank you @britishairways great staff for rushing me through as I turned up with my wife's passport. Just got mine in nick of time.

“2nd time it’s happened I’m going to have to tell my wife to get her haircut.

“The hair has to go it’s so long! Mr S.”

“Luckily I’m not following England I’d have been home after the group stages,” he joked in another Tweet.
