Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole admits getting a peck on the cheek from his Lille teammates has taken some getting used to!

The 30-year-old admits he has found some aspects of life in France harder to deal with than others.

He said: "The big difference in France is that every day you shake your team-mates' hand or some team-mates do the double kiss, in England we don't do this!

"It's a very friendly atmosphere. The food is fantastic. Very nice. I'm not surprised. I have to be careful not to eat too much. The driving is a bit strange, too."
