Bobby Robson swims

Sir Bobby Robson goes for a relaxing dip during Newcastle's Far East tour.

Send us something funny and you could win a prize.

It wasn't just Jermaine Jenas who was in hot water during Newcastle's pre-season tour of Malaysia.

Sir Bobby was furious after the young midfielder fluffed the decisive Asia Cup final penalty against Chelsea, but at least the silver-haired Geordie took some time out to relax on the trip.

He's seen here almost entirely submerged in water, and we wanted your suggestions as to what may be going on.

This week's lucky winner is David W from West London who came up with this inspired observation.

Sir Bobby regrets putting the whole packet of Opal Fruits in his mouth at once.

Congratulations David your goody bag is on it's way.
