A thunderstorm began while he was playing golf in Middlesex. He took cover below a tree from the rain when he was struck by lightning. He was 27. A very talented player for Spurs and a Scottish Internationalist, he left behind a 22 year old wife and 2 daughters.Can remember John White the spurs player being killed on the golf course after being struck by lighting back in 63 I think
There was a thread a while back about some poor woman who died after being hit by lightning. Some people, incredibly, found this funny. In fact, some of the "jokes" are the same. No doubt the same posters will be the first to get all enraged with the mildest bit of banter at the football.Seriously? A 16 year old kid is on LIFE SUPPORT and we’re making jokes??
Imagine that was one of our players and we found another club’s fans making comments like this. We would (quite rightly) be calling them all sorts.
Hope the boy makes a full and speedy recovery.
Perhaps he will get a move to replace Ter Stegen next year then.The timing of that makes It look ike he booted an explosive, unbelievable. Good to hear he is recovering. Some amazing stories of people developing incredible talents after lightning strikes such a as master mathematicians and musicians when they had no prior ability.
Don't be too sure m8.the boy seems to be on the mend and his club says he will be able to play football. on the plus side, that's never going to happen to him again
bloody hell poor guy, a guinness world record too I see, safe to say that's gonna stand forever I'd think, and he never gained any super powers
