Extra Time: Russell Brand celebrates with West Ham after Fulham win

The comedian, a life-long fan, saw the Hammers beat their London rivals in convincing fashion, with Mohamed Diame, Carlton Cole and Joe Cole scoring for the hosts
Goals from Mohamed Diame, Carlton Cole and Joe Cole saw West Ham secure their first home win since the opening day of the season as fellow strugglers Fulham were downed 3-0 on Saturday.

So it was, understandably, all smiles in the home dressing room after the game ... which only grew bigger when comedian and Hammers fan Russell Brand made an appearance, and posted the results on his Twitter page.

Brand, who is currently touring England with his 'Messiah Complex' show, is a life-long West Ham fan and is often seen at Upton Park.

The three points - West Ham's first maximum haul since beating Tottenham by the same scoreline on October 6 - have seen the London side open up a gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
