My daughter Catalina and I (Estrella89San) were in London last weekend, because my niece had with her team a football match in the Champions League against Arsenal LFC.
Therefore we were at the “Be a Gunner. Be a Runner.” charity event for the Great Ormond Street Hospital at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. We met Tom there and I have taken photos of him.
During that time Tom did an interview, he gave the start signal for both runs and he did hand over the cup. He took photos with the fans and gave a lot of signatures. On the photos of Draco, handed out by Jade, he signed his own name and also Draco’s.
After a little hesitation, my daughter and I also went over to ask for a photo with Tom. Cati didn’t dare to speak to him and so I tried. But all the sudden my really spare knowledge of the English language left me completely and I stuttered a bit. lol But then we managed a conversation with a mix of English and German. 😉
For Cati it was a great experience, because she has now a photo with Tom, an autograph from him and when Tom gave the signal for the start at the adult run, Cati was allowed to press the start button from the stopwatch.
It was really fortunate for me and my daughter that the football match took place at an earlier date.
