In an interview with the Daily Express, Elton remembered his late friend, Queen's vocalist.
He stated: “I think most people in show business have a touch of vaudeville about them. Freddie Mercury had it in spades.”
He also said it's ironic that We Are The Champions is so popular at sporting events.
Freddie hated sport, and, in fact, didn't know anything about it.
Mercury didn't even know what Arsenal F.C., one of England's best-known football clubs, was, he added.
