James Corden explains the offside rule to Elmo

Finally, a level we can all (still not) understand


Football’s offside rule is confusing for a lot of people, so it’s great that James Corden has set out to finally explain it at a level most people can understand – a description for classic Sesame Street character Elmo (currently appearing on CBeebies show The Furchester Hotel). How difficult could that be?


As it turns out, pretty difficult – and with Euro 2016 coming up, we bet Elmo will be desperate to find out more about how the beautiful game all works. Hopefully he won’t stay too fuzzy on it for too long.
