The famous footballer who has been seen at the nearby village pub has now moved just round the corner from my parents. This was first realised when my dad felt a shadow fall across him in the queue at the local Tesco. My dad has remained astonished by the identity of his new neighbour, and seems to be collecting sightings amongst his friends at the tennis club.
After the result against Croatia, I wonder if the hero-worship amongst the locals will diminish.
