Prince Albert of Monaco admits he loves Blackburn Rovers!

Rovers fans were stunned to see the prince in the directors box donning a blue and white scarf during their side's drab 0-0 draw with Newcastle United.

When asked if he was a Rovers fan pre match, the prince replied: “I am now. And for the next few hours”.
