The Danish international was understandably over the moon to see the video from the NFL icon, saying: "Tom Brady, wow. A big hero of mine, so that's fantastic. He's the best at his sport ever, I think, so that's impressive.

"I'm quite a big fan. That's brilliant, I've got to admit.

"We only really get to experience it here in England, but that shows it's gone everywhere. I've had messages from all over the world, and it's captured the imagination of everyone."

He's definitely stoked!
