There was a familiar face on the sidelines in Atlanta where super fan Harry Kane took time out from rehabbing his ankle injury to watch his hero Tom Brady lead the New England Patriots in a 13-3 triumph over the Los Angeles Rams.
While his Tottenham teammates claimed a crucial win over Newcastle at the weekend, Kane headed across the Atlantic for the biggest game on the American Football calendar with his fiancé Katie Goodland.
The England captain, who has missed five matches since damaging his ankle ligaments last month, made no secret of his allegiance to the Patriots, posing in Brady’s number 12 jersey in a photo with the winning team’s owner, Robert Kraft.
Kane is a close friend of Julian Edelman, who caught 10 passes for 141 yards to be voted the Super Bowl MVP. England manager Gareth Southgate and legendary sprinter Usain Bolt were among the other sporting celebrities in the crowd.
