Marcus Rashford learns sign language after he receives an invitation from a young fan to judge a poetry competition for children with hearing loss.
Marcus Rashford has been appreciated for his kind act of learning sign language after he accepts an invitation from a young fan to judge a poetry competition for children with hearing loss.
In a video released by the BBC, Rashford is seen learning the sign language and also talking about his interest in poetry since his early years, showing a different side of Manchester United superstar.
Last month, Rashford received a letter from a young fan, who invited him to be a judge at his school for a poetry competition. “Dear Marcus Rashford, please will you be our judge for our World Book Day poetry competition?” read the letter.
“The deaf children in Manchester will write poems. Please can you pick your winners! And give our prizes if you can? “Please let us know if you can before Feb 7th.”
The fan then drew a picture of Rashford bending a free-kick into the top corner with the caption: “I like your free kicks!” Soon, Rashford took over social media to accept the invitation by his fan.
“I mean how can I say no to this Sheryar, that’s some swerve. Count me in.” wrote Rashford on Twitter. This coverage by the BBC was an extension to the warm act by Rashford.
