Tom shared that his 13-year-old son Freddy, who is a keen football fan, is unaware of the magnitude of the event.

"I don’t think he knows quite how big it’s going to be, I don’t think he has a sense of the occasion. He’s a 13-year-old boy who loves football.,"

When asked if his son was excited about his special role, he added: "We’re just there to support our mother. I’m no expert on this.”
