Jordan Henderson's Gesture To Fan Who Was Struggling For Champions League Final Ticket

Jordan Henderson's Gesture To Fan Who Was Struggling For Champions League Final Ticket

Jordan Henderson went out of his way to secure a Champions League final ticket for a fan who was struggling to get one.

Andy Grant from Bootle, who went from being blown up in Afghanistan in the Royal Marines to a record-breaking amputee, was drafted in to do a motivational speech to the England team ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

And Andy, who is fastest single leg amputee in the world over 10km, was contacted by Henderson a year on from his speech and asked if he had a ticket for the final in Madrid against Spurs.

Then, just two days before he captained Liverpool to a 2-0 win and secured the Reds' sixth European Cup, he met up with Andy and his daughter to give him the ticket he promised.

An absolute class act.

After proudly holding the Champions League trophy aloft on Saturday night, Henderson embraced his dad with tears in his eyes in a truly wonderful moment. All the feels.

But having overcome the disease, the 64-year old was in Madrid to see his son get his hands on the richest prize in club football.

Brian also got his hands (or teeth) on his son's Champions League winners' medal too and looked like he was having the time of his life.

The Wearsider was beaming with pride after his son realised a childhood dream - with Brian revealing to Optus Sport TV that a 10-year old Jordan told him he would play in the Champions League final one day.

Summing up the feeling of what it was like to see his boy lift the big one, he said: "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."
