It’s one of the longest-running rivalries on Twitter, Piers Morgan v Gary Lineker.


Now the pair have been at it again, “Tubs” (as Lineker calls Morgan) and “Jugs” (as Morgan calls Lineker) exchanging blows over the way newspapers should be regulated.

And like nearly every spat between the pair, it was Lineker who had the final word after telling Morgan he was “always so over the top”.

To which Lineker responded…

Here’s more from our favourite Twitter feud, starting with Morgan’s support for Donald Trump.

When Morgan met Dynamo.

The exchange didn’t end there.

When Morgan won a GQ award and Lineker didn’t.
