Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is a divisive figure in English football. Some people see him as a working class guy who made it big-time and is putting his money into something he loves. Some see him as an arrogant amateur who got in over his head. They’re all united on one front, however: Almost nobody wanted to see him with his clothes off.
At a birthday party he was throwing for an employee of his company, Sports Direct, Ashley, who had knocked back a few drinks, couldn’t resist leading a striptease to the tune of ”You Can Leave Your Hat On” from the film The Full Monty.
