A passionate man by name Ataa Abbey Odenke has been a Hearts of Oak supporter for 50 years, hardly missing any match since 1970.

Perhaps, the most surprising bit of the story is that the passionate supporter has been with a physical impairment which makes it a great chore navigating stadia every time there is a match.

A report by journalist Gary Al-Smith on his official Facebook handle indicates that the fan has been recognized for his loyalty all through the years.

Midfielder Emmanuel Nettey surprised Ataa Abbey with a signed Hearts jersey which made the old man super excited. This happened in the presence of the journalist who was there to film the beautiful scenes.

According to Ataa Abbey Odenke, he has faithfully supported the club for 50 years but unavoidably missed only a handful of some home games.

Some social media users came up with the opinion that more should be done to surprise the old man who has been such a staunch supporter of the club, other than the jersey he was given.
