Last night, Jason Sudeikis showed his support for the English men's football team at the Ted Lasso premiere.

Wearing a black sweater with the names of Jadon (Sancho), Marcus (Rashford) and Bukayo Saka emblazoned on the front, Jason showed solidarity with the Black players who experienced racist abuse after England narrowly lost to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.

This is particularly poignant as Jason plays the role of Ted Lasso, who trades being an American football coach for a managerial role at an English Premier League team. We're guessing he's a fan of the beautiful game IRL then?

It's fair to say that Twitter went pretty wild for Jason's choice of attire. Author Helen O'Hara, tweeted, "Love to see the whole of Twitter united in admiration for Jason Sudeikis' sweatshirt. Some things CAN still bring us together, and Ted Lasso is all of them," while another fan added, "Not sure where Jason Sudeikis ends and Ted Lasso begins and that’s the way I like it."

This comes after Jason broke his silence over his split from Olivia Wilde.

In a GQ profile, he explained, "I’ll have a better understanding of why [we broke up] in a year, and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle.

"That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about," he continued. "You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavour to learn something beyond the obvious from it."

Jason also recently went public with his rumoured new girlfriend, Keeley Hazell. On 29 June 2021, MailOnline shared pictures of the pair with their arms around each other on a walk in New York.
