Leicester Tiger and England player Manu Tuilagi has apologised for messing around at 10 Downing Street yesterday.

During a photo-shoot for the Lions squad he made a "bunny ears" sign behind the Prime Minister's head.

The picture spread quickly across social media so Tuilagi said sorry on Twitter:

'Apologies for messing around on Lions photo. No offence intended. Great day at Downing Street. Thanks to Prime Minister for hosting us.'

Mr Cameron welcomed the British and Irish Lions rugby squad for the reception yesterday, when he was presented with fly-half Jonny Sexton's number 10 jersey:

'It's a huge honour. My son, just because of you guys, has just started tag rugby. He will be so excited about this jersey.'

Two years ago Tuilagi was fined £3,000 by the Rugby Football Union after he jumped from a ferry during England's World Cup campaign in New Zealand.
