Duncan Watmore is a very impressive young man.

He has a degree, regularly donates to charity helping those less fortunate than him and he recently became the first Championship player to sign up to Juan Mata’s Common Goal charity.

Sadly he also seems to have horrendous luck when it comes to injuries.

Recently he suffered a suspected rupture of his anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee that he suffered an identical injury in December last year.

But a sign of how impressive he is comes with a personal letter to the Sunderland forward from Real Madrid Director of Communications Emilio Butragueño which was shared on Twitter by Duncan’s father Ian.

A truly classy gesture from the European champions.
