We all need a bit of light relief from time to time, and West Ham United – unbeknownst to them – created the perfect caption competition on Twitter.
The Premier League club posted a photo of manager Slaven Bilic appearing to be deep in thought with Prince Harry.

The royal, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the London Stadium on Wednesday for a ceremony dedicated to 150 apprentices of The Royal Foundation’s Coach Core initiative, of which West Ham are partners.
During the event, Bilic met William and Kate, as well as Prince Harry, and as expected, the Hammers’ social media team documented the greetings.
One particular picture caught the eye of the fans, who tried to guess what the pair were talking about…
“So, how did you regrow your hair Slav? One would love to know.”

On the pitch, West Ham are preparing for a league clash against Brighton, which will take place on home turf on Friday evening.
Bilic has overseen just two wins from eight top-flight games this season.
