Jamie Vardy coolly dealt with questions about his Leicester future, England place and unorthodox playing preparations, but being quizzed about blocking his lookalike on Twitter caught the striker off-guard.

The 29-year-old gave short, sharp answers during a 10-minute press conference at the Three Lions' media centre in Chantilly ahead of Monday's final Group B match against Slovakia.

Vardy kept his counsel on a number of matters but chuckled when a Russia journalist asked the striker why he had blocked lookalike Lee Chapman - the postman that ended up on Leicester's bus during their title celebrations.

Asked why he had blocked Chapman, who the reporter described as being "such a nice a guy", Vardy said with a smile: "Lee Chapman? Am I not allowed to block anyone?

"There's a lot of people blocked on my Twitter for various reasons, which I don't need to go into."

It was an amusing end to the press conference and one which Chapman responded to on Twitter, posting a photo of him in full England kit sat on an a sheep with the comment "Do I care!!! #ChatS***GetBlocked"
