Lord Sugar asks if mock report suggesting lions are patrolling Russia during coronavirus pandemic is a joke

Lord Alan Sugar shared a mock news report on social media suggesting that lions are patrolling the streets of Russia during the coronavirus outbreak and asked whether it was a joke or not.

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, people across the world
are being urged to stay indoors and practice self-isolating in order to
minimise the spread of the illness.

And it seems Lord Sugar was dubious as to whether Russia really had set a pack of lions across the country to make sure people were staying indoors.

The image shows a lion walking along a street, with a ‘breaking
news’ banner which reads: ‘Russia unleashed more than 500 lions on its streets
to ensure that people are staying indoors during this pandemic.’

Sharing the image of the fake news report on Twitter, Lord Sugar
tweeted: ‘Is this a wind up?’

However, most of the business mogul’s fans knew for sure
that this was just a joke.

‘No Alan, sadly not,’ one fan cheekily replied.

Another added, with their best pun: ‘Dear God…. Someone has
been lion to you.

‘It must be very roar, I understand…!!’

‘I can’t stop laughing,’ one wrote. ‘He’s a billionaire,’ making reference to the lucrative amount of money Lord Sugar makes – an estimated net worth of £1.21billion by the Sunday Times Rich list last year.

Earlier in the day, Lord Sugar came under fire by Piers Morgan, who claimed he was doing ‘f*** all’ in regards to coronavirus.

Igniting the feud, Lord Sugar had tweeted: ‘Dear Mr Morgan
we need 25,000 ventilators please deliver ASAP. Pathetic man.

‘I think he needs the NHS psychiatric department as he is delusional.’

To which Piers then responded: ‘You’re a billionaire who’s done absolutely f*** all during this crisis except tell everyone to stop scare-mongering & take incessant pathetic potshots at me from your luxury American mansion.

‘Get off your arse & do something for your NHS staff.
Your behaviour is a disgrace.’

This isn’t the first time the two have argued over social media – with Piers going as far as to blocking Lord Sugar on Twitter last week.
