The Club was saddened to hear of the passing of Olympic gold medallist and Spurs fan Andrew Simpson.

Andrew Simpson

Andrew was well known to us here at Spurs. He visited Spurs Lodge after his gold medal triumph in sailing's Star class in Beijing in 2008, happily posed for photographs wth his medal and then took questions on his Olympic experience from our Academy players.

Last summer, he teamed-up with Iain Percy again for the London Olympics, this time winning a silver medal. In September, he joined fellow Olympians and Spurs fans Richard Hounslow, Chloe Rogers and Helen Richardson at White Hart Lane, where all four received a rousing reception from fans at half-time.

Our thoughts are with Andrew's family and friends at this sad time.
