Tottenham's hero ball boy looked like he was loving life at Spurs' pre-match lunch

Callum Hynes joined the team for a pre-match meal.

Tottenham Hotspur's brilliant comeback in midweek against Olympiakos rightfully drew a lot of praise.

There was praise for Jose Mourinho's tactical fix at 0-2 that changed the game entirely.

Praise for Harry Kane's brace that would prove decisive and Serge Aurier's wonderful goal that put Spurs ahead.

But the person who really grabbed the headlines wasn't even mentioned on the team sheet - 15-year-old ball-boy Callum Hynes.

With Spurs 2-1 down, the ball went out of play for a throw-in and quick-thinking Callum managed to get a new one to Aurier in just two seconds.

Because he was so quick, Spurs' right-back was able to get Lucas Moura in behind before the Olympiakos defence was ready.

Moura crossed it for Kane and the score was 2-2 - just seven seconds after the ball went out for the throw.

Mourinho immediately went over and thanked Callum and even talked about him to the press after the game.

“To do that you have to be a very good ballboy," he said. "I was, between 10 and 15, 16-years-old, a very good ballboy. He is a very good ballboy, understands the game, reads the game."

Kane celebrates scoring against Olympiacos.

And Mourinho wasn't even done with the congratulations as the teenager was invited to the team's pre-match meal ahead of Bournemouth on Saturday.

You can check out Spurs' tweet about it below:

Callum is greeted by Mourinho and Kane, shakes hands with Toby Alderweireld and Son Hueng-Min, and sits down with the players for the meal.

He's becoming a member of the squad, it seems...

You can imagine this meant the world to him, too, given his reaction after the Olympiakos match.

"You can see from my smile it was just unbelievable," Callum said after the game in midweek. "Jose didn’t have to do that. It was really nice of him to come over to me.

"It’s made my day, my life, really! I love Spurs and it was an amazing moment I’ll never forget.”
