What Harry Kane said to young Tottenham fan's father before Burnley win

Harry Kane bagged his seventh hat-trick of 2017 against Burnley on Sunday to cap what has been a truly outstanding year for the Tottenham striker.

He's now scored three goals in one game more times than Lionel Messi (2), Cristiano Ronaldo (2) and Robert Lewandowksi (2) combined, which is pretty incredible.

Furthermore, the 24-year-old is just one goal behind Messi (54) as overall top goalscorer for 2017 and should he score against Southampton on Boxing Day, he'll set a Premier League record.

Alan Shearer scored 36 league goals in a calendar year (1995) for Blackburn Rovers 22 years ago, which Kane equalled on Sunday and can surpass on Tuesday.

It would be a marvellous feat for Kane to achieve at such a young age and Shearer believes the England captain is now worth close to - if not more than - £200 million.

Shearer said on Match of the Day: "He is obsessed with scoring goals, the hunger to get on the ball, and put it in the back of the net.

"Everything about him is class. Last year I said he is worth £90 million, now he is worth more than double that."

Kane is now an established world-class striker and there are rumours that Real Madrid are interested in signing him next summer.

But he's not just a phenomenal striker; he's also a genuinely lovely bloke.

Kane and some of his Tottenham teammates visited Whipps Cross University Hospital recently, where the Englishman met a young Spurs fan (see below).

And in a conversation with the youngster's father, William, Kane said he would try and score a hat-trick against Burnley for the pair of them - which he did.

William wrote:

"@HKane on Wednesday he gave my son a present at whips Cross hospital and asked me what I wanted, I said a hat-trick. He said i’ll see what I can do! Thank you for delivering Harry Christmas Santa Kane. COYS!" [sic]

What a man. Kane delivered the goods against Burnley for William and his son, who is now home and "doing well" (again, see below).
