BBC Breakfast’s Naga Munchetty paid a tribute to footballer Jack Grealish after being moved by a sweet gesture he paid to a fan.
Finlay, who has cerebral palsy, appeared on BBC Breakfast on Tuesday (November 22) after he wrote to the England footballer earlier this year.
After a surprise meeting at Manchester City’s training facilities, Jack promised Finlay that he would do a special celebratory dance for him during the England v Iran game.
After doing the dance, Jack then surprised Finlay with a phonecall which was shown on BBC Breakfast.
The clip was shared on Naga’s colleague John Watson’s page, before Naga also took to Twitter to show her appreciation.
She wrote: “Something to warm your…
“Don’t need to like football, just need to like kindness.”
During their engaging conversation which was shared on social media by the official England squad, Finlay confessed that he thought Jack had forgotten about his promise.
Jack replied: “To be fair, I didn’t think I was going to score yesterday, because the game was a bit gone by the time I came on, but I was buzzing to get a goal and then I could do my little celebration just for you

“You were always in the back of my mind, mate. I’m glad you enjoyed it,” he added.
This comes after Naga recently opened up and revealed she was “expelled” from school for a rather rude reason.
The BBC Breakfast host made the shock revelation during an appearance on Comedy Central’s Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains.
