You can tell Ellis Short is again feeling good about his ownership of Sunderland.

The Texan billionaire, who has a home in Hawaii, dropped in at Abdur Rouf's Shagorika restaurant in Seaburn for a curry after Saturday's 1-0 win over Everton at the Stadium of Light.

And Short, says the Daily Mail, left a £1,800 tip for Rouf, who admits the Sunderland chairman is a regular.
