Spurs offer touching gesture for family of tragic earthquake victim


Singaporean Spurs fans Jaidip and Karen Jhala tragically lost their 12-year-old daughter, Sonia, in an earthquake that devastated Malaysia earlier this year.

The family shared a love of Tottenham Hotspur and after hearing the awful news, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino sent them a letter offering his condolences.

But the Premier League outfit decided they could do more, so they invited the family to White Hart Lane to watch Spurs take on Stoke.

The club subsequently released a video of the Jhalas‘ trip, which included the family meeting fan favourite Ledley King at White Hart Lane.
