Lucky boot boy gets keys to Mercedes-Benz

A lucky boot boy at Birmingham City football club received an end of season treat when Olivier Kapo handed him the keys to a Mercedes-Benz.

James McPike has polished the boots of the first-team player all season and will now be polishing a new Mercedes-Benz after the generous gesture from his team mate.

Tthe Frenchman had already taken his boots home and instead gave him the keys to his Mercedes-Benz as a reward for a hard season’s work.

According to the Sun, the youngster "perked up" when Kapo handed over the keys and the log book and offered to pay for the first year of insurance.

"It was a magnificent gesture and one that’s entirely in keeping with Kapo’s character," said Birmingham’s manager Alex McLeish.

Youngsters clean the boots of first-team players throughout the season and are there to learn their trade from the professionals.
