The son of Jimmy Greaves has told talkSPORT he and his family have been overwhelmed for the support behind a new campaign to see the England and Tottenham legend honoured.

The Daily Mail recently began the campaign to ‘Get Greavsie a Gong’, with many fans asking why the former striker hasn’t been honoured when a host of other footballers from his era have.

He’s in a wheelchair, he’s completely paralysed down the right side and he has very limited speech, but he’s in good spirits.”

A prolific goalscorer, Greaves was famed for being an absolute lethal finisher and is one of the best attackers in English football history.

And as Alf Ramsey didn’t want to change a winning team, it meant Greaves didn’t make it onto the field for the final, despite being fit.

Greaves tragically suffered a severe stroke in 2015, which left him wheelchair-bound and with speech difficulties.

And it has received plenty of backing from the likes of Harry Kane and Peter Crouch, while a petition to honour the legend has over 10,000 signatures and counting.
