Homeland star steals Hacks v Flaks thunder

THE ANNUAL Hacks v Flaks football and netball games, held at the Bank of England sports grounds, are always a hot ticket, but this year spectators were distracted by a cameo appearance from Homeland actor Damian Lewis.

Elite athletes from the likes of KPMG and FTI Consulting raised over £10,000 for Drayton Park School Art and Community Centre, resulting in a win for the flaks in the football and a hacks triumph in the netball game.

However, the Hacks – including City A.M. columnist and Sky News’ City editor Mark Kleinman – were somewhat upstaged by Homeland actor Damian Lewis, who happened to be playing in the Eton v Harrow old boys match on the opposite pitch.

Sadly The Capitalist hears that Kleinman couldn’t steal the attention back with a match-winning performance, as he had to retire with an injury only minutes into the game.
