Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone has wrongly been congratulated for television show ‘The Night Manager’, which starred Tom Hiddleston, an actor with a similar name.
The hit six-part BBC spy drama came to an end on Sunday, with critics praising the performance of Hiddleston, who is rumoured to be a candidate to fill the role of James Bond.
Huddlestone saw the funny side, thanking a fan for their message of congratulations.
@Huddz8 Think you’ve been excellent in Night Manager mate. Well done.
