Bespectacled rocker SIR Elton John is constantly on the phone to his mother from Las Vegas - to ask her for the sports results.

The CROCODILE ROCK singer is regularly calling SHEILA to find out if his favourite soccer team WATFORD FOOTBALL CLUB (FC) have won any of their matches, as he performs at Caesars Palace in the Nevada gambling capital.

Sheila says, "He's in Las Vegas but he'll be on the phone every 10 minutes. It drives me mad.

"He doesn't just want the football results, I have to know what is happening in the cricket and the rugby as well."

Sir Elton was chairman and director of Watford FC until 2002.
