Bukayo Saka left in stitches as he challenges England World Cup pals Grealish, Rice and Maddison to spelling test | The Sun

ENGLAND star Bukayo Saka has been left in stitches after testing his teammates spelling skills.

The Arsenal ace uploaded a number of TikToks called "Saka's Spelling School" where he quizzed Declan Rice, James Maddison and Jack Grealish.



Maddison was first up with Saka asking him to spell the word 'aesthetic'.

The Leicester midfielder, who is yet to play at the World Cup, confidently answered and smiled but got the 'H' in the wrong place to Saka's delight as he shouted "wrong".

The man with three World Cup goals at the tournament so far then chased down Jack Grealish for a question.

He was tasked with spelling 'rhythm' but he also got it incorrect putting the 'M' in the middle rather than at the end. Saka reacted bursting into laughter again.

The spelling test was then taken to the dinner table as Saka sat down with Declan Rice and Mason Mount.

Rice was given 'pronunciation' to spell but he got just six letters in before losing track of where he was but he already got it wrong prior to pausing to Mount and Saka's entertainment.

The West Ham captain saw the funny side commenting on the video saying: "Didn't even get a chance to redeem myself."

Saka is perhaps the smartest player in the Three Lions squad having achieved outstanding grades at school six months before playing for the Arsenal first team.

The outstanding student completed his GCSE's in 2018 getting four A*s and three As at Greenford High School in Ealing.

His former teacher Mark Harvey told talkSPORT: "He was a model student and academically sound across the board. He was very, very good at PE, a naturally talented sportsman."

Saka will need all his brain power on the pitch to beat France in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday night.

After his wrong answer in spelling school, Maddison joked that he would let his sister date Saka because "he's just such a nice kid" as he praised his character and personality.

It was not the same answer for Grealish, Maddison laughed: "If I had a family member and they told me 'I'm going on a date with Jack Grealish', I'd be like 'nah you're not'."
