Peter Crouch shares picture showing problem with being tall at Crystal Palace

Peter Crouch has shared a hilarious picture on social media highlighting the issue with being tall at Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park.

Crouch was in attendance for Palace's game against his former side Tottenham as a pundit, though encountered an issue ahead of kick-off.

As he sat down in a seat near to the tunnel, he found the leg room to the row in front completely inadequate for his long limbs.

The 40-year-old was forced to bend his legs up to nearly his chest in what looked a particularly uncomfortable position, which was shown in his facial expression as he turned to the camera.

Crouch was renowned for his lanky figure during his playing career, but he even an average sized person would likely struggle to fit in.

Indeed, his BT Sport colleague, Jake Humphrey, was sat down behind him while on his phone.

And his knees spilled over the vacant space and into Crouch's back, only further adding to the ex-Liverpool striker's displeasure.

In typical Crouchy fashion he made light of the situation by captioning the image on Twitter with: "Palace spurs. Can't wait."

His former side were also subjected to some discomfort once the game kicked off. Defender Japhet Tanganga was sent off for two yellow card offences.

Then Wilfried Zaha scored from the penalty spot before Odsonne Edourard netted a late brace on his debut from off the bench to end Spurs' winning start to the season.

Standing at 6'7" must make a lot of everyday occurrences a challenge for Crouch. Earlier this week he shared another funny post on social media.

A video showed him picking up an extra-long golf club that almost dwarfed him to use to on the tee off.

He has always been known as football's tallest player, though there is a non-league man who supersedes him that Man City have taken a look at.
