As PL Primary Stars promotes the #GetInTouch campaign, Spurs defender makes a surprise birthday call to 80-year-old Beryl

Last week we launched our latest Premier League Primary Stars Friday Family Challenge, encouraging families to get in touch with an older relative, friend or neighbour by writing them a letter or giving them a call.

Our clubs have been doing just that, checking in with older supporters and community programme participants while in lockdown.

One example was when Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen surprised Spurs fan Beryl with a call on her 80th birthday.
