Jamie Carragher Crashes Interview With Jordan Henderson's Dad After Liverpool Win Champions League

Jamie Carragher crashed an interview with Jordan Henderson's dad after Liverpool won the Champions League for a sixth time.

Optus Sport conducted a wonderful post-match chat with a beaming Brian Henderson, who had just seen his son realise his childhood dream of lifting the richest prize in club football.

And when Reds' legend Carragher trotted over, he simply had to share the moment with Hendo's old man and it's really, really wonderful.

Henderson Sr was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2013 and actually told his son not to visit him because he didn't want him to see in the condition he was in.

But having overcome the disease and made a full recovery, Henderson was in Madrid to share the most beautiful embrace with his boy after the game.

The Liverpool skipper had tears flowing down his cheeks as he gave his dad a big old squeeze, giving us all the feels.

Brian also revealed that a 10-year old Jordan told him he would play in the Champions League final one day and the Wearsider has gone one step further by captaining Liverpool to silverware.

He told Optus Sport: "When he was 10 I took him to see a Champions League final at Manchester United between the two Milans and he said to us, when they came out to the Champions League music, he said, 'dad I'm going to play there one day'.

"He's done it not once, but twice. And he's won one. I'm absolutely delighted for him.

"I think if he hadn't picked that trophy up today he would have had a bad, bad summer. But now he'll have a fantastic summer with the children."

"Summing up the feeling of what it was like to see his son lift the big one, he added: "It's just very emotional, the tears come, you start shaking, you grab your wife, you grab your daughter-in-law, you grab anybody that's around you. I'm just so, so happy."
