49ers join Spurs stars
Tottenham welcomed the San Francisco 49ers into their training headquarters on Monday for a community event for young children.
The 49ers landed in England earlier in the day ahead of their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley this weekend
British Olympian Lawrence Okoye, who is currently with the San Francisco 49ers, was also in attendance on Monday.
He said: ‘This is a good opportunity for me to come back and see everybody. I’m a United fan even though I’m from London - most of our fans live in London anyway. I wanted to meet Bale, but he’s gone to Madrid now.’
The 49ers flew to Heathrow straight from Tennessee, where they beat the Titans 31-17 on Sunday, rather than heading home to the West Coast first.
Their opponents at Wembley on Sunday, the Jaguars, arrive in England on Tuesday morning.
