Tom Holland, the actor who plays Spider-Man, has admitted that he’s a Tottenham Hotspur fan and Arsenal supporters have had their say.
The next edition of the popular movie series is set to come out next month and Holland has been promoting his flick. The Hollywood A-lister is one of the most popular actors in the world and his admission has come as a shock to many.
The 25-year-old sat down for an interview with GQ ahead of the release of his new movie, titled Spider-Man: No Way Home. The Kingston upon Thames-born actor revealed who he would like to see in next season’s Champions League final.

Holland said: “I would want to see Tottenham play Brentford (in the final of the UEFA Champions League).

“2022 Champions League final – take my money, I’m going. That’s where I’ll be.”
On their official Twitter handle, Tottenham, predictably, decided to boast about Spider-Man being one of their own
