A Gaywood pupil has been praised on social media by England footballer Harry Kane.

Ellie Murphy (pictured), aged seven, who attends Howard Junior School, drew a picture of a doctor and nurse with an ambulance to show appreciation for everything they do.

Donning a Tottenham Hotspur T-shirt, Ellie is proudly holding her drawing, which was then tweeted by her mum, Kiyomi Murphy.

The post was later tweeted by Spurs striker Mr Kane who said: “Well done Ellie great drawing. The nurses and doctors are doing a great job.” 

The post went on to be retweeted more than 1,000 times.

Mrs Murphy said: “Ellie’s dad, Martin, is a big Spurs fan. Ellie knows Harry Kane because of this and the World Cup.

“We were all delighted to see he retweeted the picture, we never expected it.”
