"It was seven years ago that Robbie Keane discovered he's related to Morrissey, the frontman of The Smiths.

The two are cousins, a fact Keane's mother had forgotten to tell her son.

"You can see the resemblance - he's the image of my uncle," Keane told BT Sport before recounting how found out about his connection with the famous singer.

"I was in L.A. and I was in a shop. You might remember Dougie Freedman who used to play with Crystal Palace.

"One of his friends was in the shop. He said 'Ah, listen, my name is Liam and I'm best friends with Dougie Freedman and I look after Morrissey.

"He said he really wants to meet you. I said, 'Oh, really?' He said, 'Yeah, yeah, he's a cousin of yours'. I said, 'Is he?' I hadn't a clue.

"I rang my mother and asked, 'Am I cousins with Morrissey?' She says 'Yeah, my mother's mother and his mother as sisters'. I said, 'You only took 20-odd years to tell us that Morrissey is our cousin?' She goes, 'Ah, I forgot'.""

In a new interview in Classic Pop, the Sparks are asked about Morrissey.
"We love so much of what he's done, to see his stance against humanity seems so contradictory. From his music we thought inclusion would be part of his views. When it comes to us versus them,
Morrissey seems to be on the side of them. It's very disheartening."
