Kele Okereke of Bloc Party has spoken about the bust-up he had with Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon during the summer.

The two came to blows when Okereke accused someone in Lydon's entourage of making a racial slur against him, which Lydon later denied - accusing the Bloc Party singer of 'jealousy'.

However, he told The Sun at the weekend: "I have only one thing to say about that man - John Lydon is the devil in my eyes. I really wanted to, like, whip his face off. I was lucky I had lots of people around me who were calming me down.

"I didn't really think about what was happening at the time. I'm not really someone who's very good at backing down from fights. I'm just pleased there are witnesses."
