How Jan Vertonghen made one boy's Christmas extra special

24 DECEMBER 2019

When Spurs legend Jan Vertonghen turned up at this door, it made Jackson's Christmas

Last Christmas, Jackson, 7, was in hospital with cancer. It couldn't be more different this year! 

His whole family are huge Tottenham Hotspur fans, so they couldn't believe it when one of their heroes, Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen, surprised them by showing up on their doorstep two days before Christmas. Jan had brought with him tickets for the whole family to attend the Boxing Day fixture at the new stadium...it will be Jackson's first ever match!  And not only will Jackson be attending, he'll be going sitting in one of the stadium's best suites. 

A huge thank you to everyone at Spurs for making this possible for Jackson, his sister Scarlettt and the whole family.
