Piers Morgan has promised to donate £5,000 to Great Ormond Street Hospital if Arsenal are beaten by Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s north London derby.

The celebrity Arsenal fan made the pledge with former Spurs chairman Lord Sugar, with both agreeing to donate the cash to the London children’s hospital if their team loses, and £2,500 each if the game ends as a draw.

It is not the first time that Morgan and Sugar have put charity donations on the line ahead of crunch games for their teams.

The former Daily Mirror editor and Arsenal shareholder confirmed his bet with Sugar in the lead-up to Sunday’s showdown at Emirates Stadium.

Morgan tweeted on Sunday before the game:

Arsenal head into the game on the back of their 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek. Spurs, meanwhile, were 2-1 winners over Anderlecht at White Hart Lane in the Europa League on Thursday night.
