This is the moment a classful of Little Legends got to meet a living football legend.

Football mad kids from Campsbourne Primary School in Haringey, north London, were told they would be getting a very special substitute P.E. teacher for the day.

And WHAT a sub!

As the excited youngsters waited in anticipation to see who would take them for football lessons, in walked none other than former Tottenham and Liverpool captain, Jamie Redknapp – and the kids went wild - as you can see from this heartwarming video.

The surprise event was all the more timely for the fact that Sky Sports presenter Jamie once skippered Spurs – the team that lost 2-0 to Chelsea in the fantastically contested Capital One Cup Final on March 1 at Wembley.

Jamie's visit was part of League Cup sponsor Capital One's Little Legends campaign to 'celebrate children's imaginations and the importance of quality family time'.

It kicked off the season with a competition to give mums or dads the chance to take up to five kids to any Round One Capital One Cup game for just £1.

Capital One also created a child–friendly stadium for Carlisle's game against Derby County.

And for the Wembley showdown, Capital One gave Little Legends a day they will remember for the rest of their lives when they joined the teams and match officials on the pitch.

Highlights included:

• One lucky Little Legend carried the match ball onto the pitch prior to the Final.

• Six Little Legends became flag bearers on the pitch prior to the game.

• And three lucky Little Legends got to take a penalty and also to go in goal to save a penalty at half time.

• A choir of 30 children singing the National Anthem to all 89,294 attendees.
