Jamie Vardy’s wife was tear-gassed by French police as she travelled to England’s match against Russia last night.
Rebekah Vardy slammed the behaviour of officers as ‘horrific’ and claimed that English supporters were caged in ‘like animals’ as they tried to make their way into Stade Vélodrome in Marseille.
Vardy did not make it onto the pitch to help his teammates in their Group B opener, with the game ending 1-1.
However, his lack of action was far from the mind of Rebekah as she tweeted furiously about the treatment of England fans.
Before the match she posted a picture of herself holding a pint of beer as she enjoyed the ‘carnage with England fans’.
However, after the game she told a contrasting story.
Rebekah wrote: ‘That has to be up there with the worst experience EVER at an away game!
‘Teargassed for no reason, caged and treated like animals! Shocking!
‘I witnessed this with my own eyes! I can’t comment on things I didn’t see but what I got caught up in was horrific and uncalled for!
‘And this happened before the game even kicked off!’
