According to Mr Morgan's Daily Mail column, he had been seated at the same table as Mr Bellerin, and earlier in the evening had been talking to him about Arsenal's recent run of poor form.

He wrote: "Later, fellow Arsenal fan Jeremy Corbyn came over to speak to him. When I tried to interrupt, the Labour leader - whose wife is Mexican - promptly switched to fluent Spanish to shut me out of the conversation."

[...]

Jeremy Corbyn has responded to Piers Morgan's claim that he was deliberately "shut out" of a conversation with Spanish Arsenal full back Hector Bellerin when the Labour leader deliberately switched into Spanish, by tweeting at both men, in Spanish.

Mr Bellerin had told Piers Morgan to "calm down mate" over the claim in his column. Mr Corbyn replied ,saying: "Fue un placer conocerte.Es mejor que no le digamos de lo que estabamos hablando, no lo entenderia. Muy buen juego en el partido el domingo."

A reverse-endorsement from that insufferable apology for an interviewer should be a tidy vote-getter.

Nice bit of ju-jitsu, Jezz.

'Being shut out of the conversation' = 'not letting me dominate it with pompous prattery'.

Tears for Piers.
