David became a vegan in 2014 and has spoken about his meat-free diet

An onlooker said: “I couldn’t believe my eyes.

“David has told the world about his veganism and talked of his meat-free diet while flogging his vegan protein brand.

“His meat-free diet credentials have hit the canvas.”

The popular big-hitter, who formerly starred in a promo video for animal rights group Peta, was spotted tucking in on the terrace restaurant at central London’s Blake­more Hyde Park Hotel.

Haye — wearing a baseball cap and a hoodie — had left his £100,000 Rolls-Royce outside.

Haye, who appeared on I’m A Celebrity in 2012, became a vegan in 2014.

In 2017 he told The Sun: “I’ve had a plant-based diet for three years.

“I have a full-time chef and a good nutritionist who makes sure I get all the minerals and nutrients required, which isn’t easy in a plant-based diet.

“I feel better than ever, I look and feel younger.

“People say, ‘Where do you get your strength from?’. I say, where does an ape get his strength from?

“He’s 20 times stronger than a human and doesn’t have a meat-based diet.

“They eat plants all day long. It’s a myth that you need meat for strength.

“But I don’t like to ram it down people’s throats.

“People say, ‘How do you know if someone is a vegan – because they never stop talking about being a vegan!’”

Last night representatives of Haye were asked for comment.
