The singer-turned-fashion designer reunited with the footie ace who was said to be 'inconsolable' after learning about the 83-year-old's passing away from cancer.
The couple met at the posh Claridge's Hotel ahead of the family's private funeral service. The 34-year-old sportsman paid tribute to Joe at the World Cup draw in South Africa.
"My grandad was very proud of me being a part of this bid to bring the World Cup to England," the Daily Star quoted him as saying. "If I had decided to go home, I know what he was like - a strong person from the East End of London - he would have shouted at me for leaving because he was passionate about his country," he added.
