Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul feels honoured to have met 103-years-old war veteran

Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul has revealed how much of "an honour" it was to present the 103-years-old war veteran with a shirt before their match against Tottenham Hotspur.

British Army veteran Kenneth Mayhew is one of just four living knights of the Military William Order - the highest honour awarded to people who have served in the Netherlands.

Major Mayhew, a Norwich City fan, was guest of honour at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - the first time City have visited the new hope of the London club.

Posting on Twitter afterwards, Krul wrote: "Was an honour to meet this hero. Unfortunately, we couldn't give him the three points as a present.

"103 and counting, such an inspiration."

Presenting the shirt, Krul said: "We especially wanted to see you tonight because you have done so much for our country."

Mayhew celebrated his 103rd birthday on Saturday, January 18.
