And there were some tweets that were...probably a bit different to Tom Bradby's usual chatter about Westminster politics.

That said, some people can't help but express their adoration for ITV's political frontman.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MOST HANDSOME & TALENTED QUARTER BACK IN NFL HISTORY @tombradby , YOUR'E MY HERO ❤️

Tens of thousands of tweets later, Bradby has taken to Twitter to thank his adoring fans.

Apparently, the consensus is I played really well last night. Thanks to my fans for all their tweets.

He's been reduced to asking Brady's wife, the model Gisele Bündchen, to get the NFL player on Twitter.

But, in the nicest possible way @giseleofficial, is there any chance you can lure your husband onto Twitter so he can cop the abuse himself!

But there is the possibility of a career change.

It occurs to me I could have an entirely parallel life dealing with Tom Brady's fans on Twitter.

Alternatively, I could come to an agreement; I'll deal with his abuse if he deals with mine.
