Jordan with OGC Nice star player Timothée Kolodziejczak before kick off.

Enjoy this heart warming report from French TV, follow Special Olympics France athlete Jordan on one of the happiest days of his life. He is quite possibly the biggest fan of top french league club OGC Nice. His bedroom walls are covered from top to bottom with OGC Nice poster and his wardrobe filled with OGC Nice shirts. He even has the same tattoo as one of the players! On March 15th Jordan was invited as a special guest to Allianz Riviera Stadium to be a joint recipient, along with his hero OGC Nice’s star player Timothée Kolodziejczak, of a Euro 10,000 award from the French Football league in recognition of OGC Nice’s work with Special Olympics. Jordan and Timothée have obviously struck up a strong friendship and Jordan was invited to join the rest of the player in the locker room after the victorious match. He ended up receiving a unbelievable gift. Well done to the players of OGC Nice for treating one of their best fans so well.
