As Newcastle United support a lot can often get dismissed when it comes to having a rivalry with Sunderland. But not in this instance. Young Bradley Lowery was diagnosed with terminal cancer at a very young age. The chance came up for Bradley to be the mascot for Sunderland at a home game, a chance that he took up right away. On that matchday, Bradley caught sight of Jermain Defoe, he ran straight up to him and into his arms for a huge embrace with his favourite player and from that moment on they had a brilliant friendship. Footballers in our days are often labelled this and that, but Jermain went above and beyond any expectation that there was of him when it came to Bradley. He visited Bradley a good number of times, Bradley even walked out hand in hand with Jermain at Wembley for an England game. Jermain has been a rock for Bradley and on the 6th July 2017 Jermain was interviewed and was asked about Bradley and his true feelings for the young lad were shown and after a long time of being strong for Bradley & his family Jermain broke down and shed tears and declaring that Bradley will be in heart forever.
So I hereby would like 2017 BBC Sports Personality Of The Year Award to be given to Jermain Defoe for exceeding any expectation that their was of him when it came to Bradley and for supporting this young lad and his family during this tough time and providing the youngster and his family with memories that will never fade away for them or for Jermain himself.
