US cancer teen gets surprise trip to see Leicester City

A family have released video of the moment a 13-year-old boy with leukaemia is told he's being flown from the US to England to watch his beloved Leicester City.

Travis Hackett, from San Diego, has been a Foxes fan for three years and credits their amazing success - winning the Premier League last year and reaching this season's Champions League quarter-finals - with helping him get through his treatment.

He's been flown to England to watch the Foxes take on Sunderland at the King Power Stadium by a US charity that organises dream trips for young football fans with cancer.

A representative from the Craig Willinger Fund charity broke the news to Travis in a Skype call.
