Mason Mount failed spelling bee challenge after just three letters, Bukayo Saka left the room in disgust

Bukayo Saka's spelling bee challenge has reached new levels of hilarity following Mason Mount's failed attempt to spell 'occasionally'.

Saka's 'spelling school' has gone viral on social media, featuring the likes of Jack Grealish, James Maddison, Declan Rice and Marcus Rashford, among others.

The Arsenal star, who has scored three goals at the World Cup, has filmed his teammates trying to spell tricky words on camera.

But Grealish, Maddison, Rice and Rashford have failed to spell any of the words put to them, with Mount taking it to another level.

Maddison told the Chelsea star to spell the word 'occasionally' - to which he replied: "O-C-A..."

Loading…

Within the third letter, he failed the challenge as the players around the table erupted in laughter, with the clip panning to Saka who begins to leave his seat in disgust.

Mount immediately recognised his own mistake, hilariously correcting himself: "Oh, double C!"

So far, Maddison has failed to spell 'aesthetic', Grealish couldn't spell 'rhythm' and Rashford got stumped on 'embarrassed' while Rice was unable to spell 'pronunciation'.

And when the tables were turned and the Leicester City man challenged Saka, he correctly spelled 'nauseous'.

After correctly spelling the word, the 21-year-old celebrated and embraced Mount.

Needless to say, Saka's correct spelling of 'nauseous' sent social media wild as fans online celebrated their 'star boy'.

One Twitter user wrote: "That’s my star boy right there."

A second tweeted: "The best part of the world cup has been Saka content."

A third added; "I can’t be the only one who don’t like seeing their players be friendly with rival players."

A fourth commented: "Mount doesn’t even know if it was right or wrong."

So, Saka's not only been great on the field, but also off the field.

He'll look to take his brilliant form into England's quarter-final game against France on Saturday.
