Over recent months people have begun chanting "Oh Jeremy Corbyn" to the tune of "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes in a display of support for the Labour leader.

The chant, which has been used by football fans for years, was first adapted for Corbyn when he addressed the crowd at a concert in Tranmere. He later said that he'd been "moved" by the chant.

After the election result two weeks ago, the chant has become even more ubiquitous, being heard at nightclubs...

In @LIQUIDROOMS for the 1st time last night, & when Seven Nation Army came on the crowd started roaring "OH JEREMY CORBYN". My kind of club.
