Tottenham striker Defoe left RED-faced by Rihanna's Arsenal wind-up

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has been left RED-faced by pop diva Rihanna.

The Mirror says Defoe pitched up at her sell-out gig at London's O2 and she invited him to hang out backstage.

Giving Jermain a huge hug, Rihanna started gushing about what a great player he was - for arch-rivals Arsenal. D'Oh!

Rihanna told him: "Oh, Jermain, you play for Arsenal, yeah? I've heard all about you."

Cue a cringe-worthy silence only broken when Defoe and his pals, including Spurs goalkeeper Brad Friedel, all burst out laughing.

RiRi, 23, added: "Haha. Gotcha. Only joking. You'd look great in red though."

Jermain then playfully poked her in the ribs and said: "You've got some banter on you."
