His father put his arm around him and told him “We’ll go again and work even harder”.

Those words have stuck sleigh through several unsuccessful loan spells and even to this day, where he is the captain of his country and recognized as one of the best strikers of his generation.

Spurs Striker Kane says with confidence and support from others, “the more real” his dreams became.

Kane also announced the launch of his mental health foundation, which will seek to “fight stigma” and “transform a generation’s thinking about mental health.”
