FOAM pie protester ­Jonathan May-Bowles threw an insult at Rupert Murdoch yesterday after pleading guilty to assaulting him.

The comedian, 26, said: “I would like to say this has been the most humble day of my life.” Those were the words the News Corporation boss used at the Commons committee hearing into phone-hacking last week.

May-Bowles, of Windsor, Berks, also claimed police praised him for his foam attack on the media mogul.

He tweeted after the Westminster magistrates hearing: “One said I was a legend.”

Sentencing was adjourned until Tuesday.
