Leslie, who was born in Tottenham in 1924, is famous for his role in the Carry On films and is a life-long Spurs fan. 

This was the first home game Leslie had attended in a number of years, having suffered a stroke in August, 2014. 

Joined by members of his family, Leslie reminisced about the last time he was at White Hart Lane where the team played Swansea during the 2012-13 season.

Mabbsy surprised Leslie pitchside before kick-off and presented the actor with a personalised shirt.
