Hegerty then continued: “And it seems like you’ve got some quiz chops as well.”

Posting the clip on social media, Cole wrote: “Enjoyed my time on #TheChase #BeatTheChasers @itvchase @itv.

“Also donated to @whufoundation who I work with quite closely to make the community a better place for all. It’s now available to stream on @itvxofficial.”

Since retiring, the 40-year-old has been working as a pundit.

Speaking recently about James Ward Prowse’s England omission, he told TNT Sports: “I don't understand it myself. When you're playing at the top of your game and you’re contributing week in, week out, you deserve a reward.

“It’s not just set-pieces he’s known for; he’s scoring goals in open play, he’s setting up goals, creating chances for the team, and his passing range is unbelievable. He’s always up there with the striker. So I don’t understand why he’s not even being selected.”

He continued: “Jordan Henderson has gone to, I’d say, not a competitive league [in Saudi Arabia] – not like how Ward-Prowse is, and he’s playing at the top of his game at the moment.

“It might help him in another sense. He’ll get there eventually, I feel. But he’s never going to drop off because he’s always going to have something to prove, so hopefully it’s good for West Ham.”
