That comedian who pelted cash at Sepp Blatter is the same guy who invaded Kanye's Glasto set

Lee Nelson sure does get around.

A FIFA NEWS conference has been suspended after president Sepp Blatter was pelted with fake cash.

Comedian Lee Nelson invaded the stage and interrupted the conference before showering Blatter in notes.

As Nelson, whose real name is Simon Bodkin, said his piece, Blatter motioned for his security to come forward. After Bodkin was removed Blatter addressed the journalists, telling them the area would have to be cleaned before they could continue.

FIFA has faced deepening controversy over conspiracy and corruption charges in recent months.

Simon Bodkin is the same notorious prankster who stormed the stage during Kanye’s set at Glastonbury last month. He was quickly escorted off and, Kanye being Kanye, the song was restarted.

He retweeted this reference to his Blatter stunt in the past half an hour:
