Jofra Archer gives the Barmy Army their inflatable watermelon back

Jofra Archer is quickly becoming a fan favourite among England fans.

The Barbadian born bowler played a significant role as England won the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

He was rewarded for a fine tournament with a call up to the second Ashes test and he quickly hit the ground running.

Archer took five wickets in the second Ashes test at Lord's, which ended in a draw.

The 24-year-old then followed up his encouraging debut with six wickets during Australia's first innings in the third test.

However, despite Australia recording a low score of 179, there wasn't too much to cheer about at all for England fans inside Headingley on day two.

England could only muster 67 in their first innings - their lowest tally in an Ashes match since 1948.

Joe Denly was the only England batsman to muster double figures as he managed 12.

But Archer gave England fans something to shout about and enhanced his reputation even further on Friday evening.

A steward had confiscated a giant inflatable watermelon that was being tossed about by the Barmy Army.

He was carrying it away and out of sight; only for Archer to stop him in his tracks.

Archer ran 80 yards before taking the inflatable off the steward and throwing it back int he crowd.

His actions drew a massive cheer from the Barmy Army who expressed their gratitude.

Watch the moment below:

Brilliant. As if England fans couldn't love Archer any more.

They responded by chanting 'Arise, Sir Jofra' back at their hero.
