The Irishman, who is a fan of American Football, took a break from punditry duty on Sky Sports to watch NFL in London. The television cameras picked out Keane in the crowd at Spurs' stadium, where the Irishman was approached by a fellow spectator.

The man appeared to be asking Keane for an autograph or selfie. The former Manchester United captain, however, wasn't in the mood to provide either as he was trying to watch the game.

Keane appeared to tell the spectator that he was watching the match and that he would oblige after the game.

Keane has said in the past that he 'hates being in the public eye. "There’s nothing worse than people coming up to you," he said on The Overlap with Gary Neville.

"But listen, people can be polite too. However, sticking a phone into your face or following you with a camera is not on.

"If you said 'no' to their request, people would then think you’re rude. I’d be going, 'I’m the rude one? You’re coming up to me with a phone?'"

"There are really good fans. I bumped into a United fan who showed me his tattoo and he just said, ‘Alright’ and walked on.

"I was thinking, 'that’s a proper fan'. People who invade your privacy with a phone or jersey, I think they’re just annoying.”
