Alex Mann returned from Glastonbury to find himself famous.
Part of the Pyramid Stage crowd for Dave, the Steatham rapper invited him onstage to rap some bars from his song 'Thiago Silva'.
Smashing the song out of the park, his clear love for Dave's movement and his relish for being onstage quickly went viral.
Alex Mann's phone must have been running off the hook - pretty soon he was bantering with Gary Lineker.

Before Thiago Silva himself got involved.
