Alan Shearer has posed with his head in a crocodile's mouth as he visited his unlikely friend, movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The pair uploaded a series of images of them together to Twitter on Friday as Shearer visited the Terminator star as part of his work as a Premier League ambassador.

These also included the Newcastle United legend presenting the Austrian action hero with a 'Shearer 9' Magpies shirt as they also posed for the camera while holding a sword.

Shearer is in the USA promoting the MyPLMorning campaign and has also been vocal about the takeover of his former club and the sacking of Steve Bruce in recent days.

Shearer posted a picture of himself presenting Schwarzenegger with the shirt to his Twitter, with the caption "Toon Arnie", followed by a series of white and black emojis.

Schwarzenegger quote tweeted the upload and wrote "Great to see you my friend!" and accompanied this with two more pictures of the pair.

In the first, Shearer can be seen with his head inside the mouth of a fake crocodile as the duo both act shocked and concerned for the former England forward's safety.

Schwarzenegger is an avid football fan, having previously revealed he played it a lot during his teenage years while growing up in Austria.

He also stated in 2019 that he was a fan of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool during an interview with BBC Sport before a match against Tottenham Hotspur.

Shearer and Schwarzenegger were together on Friday as they promoted the Premier League's MyPLMorning campaign in the USA.

The MyPLMorning campaign is being promoted by the Premier League and pushing further exposure of the league in the USA, with the support of its clubs and their American fanbases.
