Frank Underwood took a break from political controversy to hang out with Francesco Totti today

Kevin Spacey was in attendance for Roma’s clash with Inter Milan but Marco Icardi scored twice for the guests as they won 3-1.

KEVIN SPACEY IS in Rome to publicise his latest film, Baby Driver, and took up an offer to swing by the city’s iconic Stadio Olimpico and catch Roma in action against Inter Milan.

He got the VIP treatment too and was presented with shirts by both teams while he was so starstruck by Francesco Totti that he posed for a selfie.

Still, Roma came up short on the pitch, despite Edin Dzeko putting them in front after 15 minutes.

They seemed to be in complete control and had already smacked the woodwork once already – through Aleksandar Kolarov – before the Bosnian found the net.

Radja Nainggolan and Diego Perotti both hit the post later on as the Nerazzurri struggled to find a foothold.

But, Mauro Icardi levelled after 67 minutes and that prompted a collapse from the home side.

Just 10 minutes later Icardi – and Inter – had a second before Matias Vecino added a third late on.

It means Inter – who are now managed by former Roma boss Luciano Spalletti – are two for two in the league so far and sit joint-top alongside Juventus.
