In a bid to keep with the hype around the 62,000-seat stadium, Tottenham’s social media team released a series of birds-eye-view pictures as construction work continues on the site of their former White Hart Lane ground.
The snaps did make waves – but, apparently, not exactly in a way the football club expected: social media users were quick to spot that the arena looked like a toilet seat from above, and the unfortunate angle drew much ridicule on Twitter:
