  • Robbie Williams stuns fans by giving World Cup TV viewers the finger during live coverage of his opening ceremony performance

    Robbie Williams has sparked outrage after appearing to give the finger to the camera during a performance at the World Cup opening ceremony.

    Football fans exploded on Twitter after noticing the ageing singer stick his middle finger up when leaving the pitch following a performance of his hit song 'Angels' as part of Thursday afternoon's proceedings.

    Twitter users were left stunned by Williams' antics with some blasting him for a 'lack of morals' and calling him 'desperate for attention'.

    Thousands of revellers packed inside the sold-out stadium to witness the dazzling opening ceremony - which was watched by an estimated one billion people worldwide.

    According to experts, Williams risks facing arrest and a fine for his one finger gesture, if it is proved it was meant as an insult.

    Russia's administrative code allows prosecutors to take offenders to court and be punished for outraging public decency - punishable with fine of up to £6,000.

    One legal source in Moscow said: 'It needs to be proved that the gesture was intended to be an insult and an expert has to testify in the court that it was an insult.'
