A Tottenham Hotspur fan travelled over 4,000 miles in a 31-hour journey to watch his side face Burnley on Sunday, only for the game to be called off due to heavy snow.

Twitter user @SaxyKeN17 made the trip to Turf Moor all the way from Dallas, United States, and his tweet posted prior to the game went viral on social media.

He wrote: "Dallas to London to Burnley (almost there) 31 hours - no sleep - fueled by coffee, cheese crackers and more coffee. Frigid temps and snow predicted for match day. The things we do when you love your club @SpursOfficial #coys #thfc #snowmatch"

The fan, who travelled with his partner, received plenty of support from fellow supporters. Kieron Bryan, who is chief video producer at Channel 4 news, even invited him for the Brentford on Thursday.

Spurs legend Micky Hazard also reached out and asked the couple to be his VIP guests for a night with Ledley King and Michael Dawson. And England captain Harry Kane even said he would be willing to host the pair for a home game.

"Just been sent this tweet and absolutely gutted for you! For your commitment and to make up for the match being called off I’d like to invite you to a home game as my guest when you’re next in London," Kane said.
