Football Flick’s ‘Granaldo’ goes viral over Lockdown
Violet Slater, Football Flick Athlete Kodi Slater’s grandma, has found international recognition as ‘Granaldo’ after a video of her playing Football in the back garden with Football Flick went Viral.
Granaldo, as now she’s now known, was featured all over social media in the UK & Internationally. Former England International & Match Of The Day Presenter Gary Lineker shared his support for Violet’s skills after Local ITV news picked up on her talent.
Well played, Violet. 👏🏻 https://t.co/G41GoWJNOv— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 8, 2020
Violet has been getting into her Football thanks to her Grandson, who is a Football Flick Athlete and part of the Football Flick Futures programme, which will be re-launching soon.
Speaking to the Shropshire Star, Kodi’s Dad & Violet’s son, Phil Slater said: “It’s been brilliant, she’s loving all of the attention. It’s something that’s brought them [Kodi & Violet] both closer together.”
It shows how far a feel-good story goes in these testing times, but also how Football & Football Flick isn’t just for kids, but all the family as well.
