The legendary lanky football player Peter Crouch surprised an unsuspecting fan over video chat with BT Sport.
As part of the channel’s Team Talk series Peter is reaching out to people across the UK to have a chat with them. Currently there are lots of people who’re unable to see loved ones. Being apart from others can have a really heavy toll on your mental health, so in this video, Peter surprised a fan who’s currently stuck in bed due to a leg injury.
Elaine from Leigh-on-Sea is overjoyed to see Peter pop up on her computer screen. Although she’s a die-hard Southend-on-Sea FC supporter, she’s still chuffed to chat to the ex-England International. They talk about some of their favourite footballing memories. They’ve actually both got something in common, in that they both missed watching out on football finals because someone they knew was having a baby at the same time. Elaine’s son missed Southend’s play off final due to his child being born on the same day and Peter Crouch had to miss attending the recent Liverpool Spurs Champions League Final due to the birth of his son.
