Ghodoussi, whose wife is still bidding to purchase the Magpies alongside the Reuben brothers and the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, has been present on social media during the takeover bid.

And when he tweeted “Finally some good news!!! #upyourscovid #santascomingtotown” in response to a post by Prime Minister Boris Johnson this morning, some supporters got a tad excited.

One reply read: “Don’t do that to me Mehrdad!! My heart nearly went into takeover overload!! #NUFC #NUFCTakeover”

Following a number of similar responses, Ghodoussi later tweeted: “Apologies for the last Tweet. Didn’t mean to give everyone a heart attack. #NUFC”
