The son of Jimmy Greaves has revealed that he has been overwhelmed with the support over the campaign for the former striker to be honoured.
The Daily Mail launched the campaign to Get Greavsie a Gong’ in a bid for the former Spurs and England striker to receive the recognition which he deserves.
Leading sporting figures including Harry Kane and Peter Crouch have thrown their support behind the campaign which has left Danny Greaves lost for words.
Greaves suffered a severe stroke five years ago, will turn 80 this month and a film about his life, ‘Greavsie’, will premiere on BT Sport on February 18th.
He scored a record 266 goals for Tottenham, won the FA Cup twice and the Cup-Winners’ Cup and finished as Division One’s top scorer on six occasions.
"It's absolutely amazing and I'm overwhelmed."
"I don't know why dad hasn't been honoured in the past."
"His speech is very limited, which is a real shame."
