VIDEO: James Corden’s ‘Smithy’ runs for FIFA presidency in new Sport Relief sketch

Plenty of us have thought we could do a better job than Sepp Blatter in charge of FIFA, but none of us have launched our own presidency bid like James Corden’s ‘Smithy’.

Corden’s Gavin and Stacey character has made a return for that exact purpose, starring in a Sport Relief sketch alongside Steven Gerrard.

The pair, both now based in Los Angeles, show on-screen chemistry worthy of any Hollywood blockbuster as they…ahem…get into an argument about tea.

We wonder if Sir Alex Ferguson will be tempted to change his mind about his preferred candidate for the FIFA presidency after this.
