Meanwhile, Sir Rod recently said Sir Elton deliberately snubbed his invite to play football following their “big falling out”.
He explained during a conversation with Virgin Radio breakfast host Chris Evans on his How to Wow podcast: “We don’t talk to each other anymore. Big falling out.”
The star had hoped that they could bond again over their shared love of the sport.
He said: “Last time I emailed him I said, ‘I’ve got this football pitch, would you like the boys to come up?’ You know, cos they both love football.”(sic)
However, Sir Rod admitted in the podcast that his offer was ignored by Sir Elton, which he found disappointing.
