Grime star or footballer? A quiz for editors

After the Irish Herald mistook Stormzy for Romelu Lukaku a quick test on sports stars and rappers

Grime star Stormzy has reacted angrily after an Irish newspaper mistook him for new Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

The rapper, not the footballer, was pictured on the back page of the Herald Irish in a Manchester United tracksuit alongside a story about the £75m deal.

The error soon went viral, and although some people found it amusing others, including Stormzy himself, were less amused.

The paper's editor, Alan Steenson, soon issued an apology and said: "Hands up, we got it badly wrong.

"We are totally embarrassed and want to say sorry to all involved and our readers for the error. We will keep our eye on the ball in future."

To help here is a quiz to help differentiate between footballers and grime stars:
