Is this allowed?
Howard Webb has just admitted checking his phone in the MIDDLE of the World Cup final.
Which would normally be OK.
Except that Howard was refereeing at the time!
Webb told BT Sport how checked his phone at half-time – and realised he should have sent off Nigel de Jong for this attack fan Xabi Alonso.
And it has set tongues wagging.
Still, Webb won’t mind. He’s been both a policeman and a ref in his career – so he’s used to getting stick.
