Jack Hunter-Spivey lived his childhood dream as he clinched Commonwealth gold in front of a home crowd at Birmingham 2022.
The Liverpool fan compared the NEC Arena to Anfield and likened the crowd to his 12th man as he beat Nigeria's Nasiru Sule in four sets.
It marked the end of a rollercoaster journey to the table for Hunter-Spivey, who was born in a deprived area of Liverpool, he was deaf and blind until nine months old.
The Liverpudlian was playing table tennis in a youth club in Widnes when London won the bid for the 2012 Paralympics, but narrowly missed out on competing at the home Games.
A decade on, Hunter-Spivey took his chance to compete in front of a home crowd as he powered to gold, adding to his Paralympic bronze from Tokyo.
