West Brom send message to Gary Lineker after 1-1 draw, who responds

West Bromwich Albion's twitter account had a message for the Match of the Day host and Leicester fan.

West Bromwich Albion secured an impressive 1-1 draw away to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday evening, putting a huge dent in their opponent's title chances.

The Baggies surprise point meant Tottenham slipped seven points behind Leicester City, who now just need one win from their final three games to win the title.

Leicester City fan and former player Gary Lineker has promised to present Match of the Day in his pants if the Foxes win the league, making the pledge earlier in the season when the feat seemed far more unlikely.

Spurs had gone into the game as heavy favourites after beating Stoke 4-0 a week earlier, but did not play with the same conviction they did at the Britannia, and Tony Pulis' side took advantage of a nervous atmosphere to come back and claim a draw.

West Brom's official twitter account reached out to Lineker after the game, eliciting a response from the former star, who had earlier expressed his delight at the Baggies' draw.

At least it's not Adrian Chiles...
