An amazing video from 1992 of Derek Redmond snapping his hamstring during the 400m semi-final race in Barcelona's 1992 Summer Olympics has seen a trend on Father's Day.
The video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Twitter shows the true meaning of fatherhood as Derek's dad showed up to stand by him in his toughest moments.
Just four years earlier, in 1988, Redmond had been forced to drop out of the same race before it even began at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul because of a torn Achilles tendon.
See video below:
In 1992, when he had the injury during the race, a remarkable mark was made on the sands of time when Derek's father entered the tracks to help his son.
As the athlete was determined to finish his face despite the injury, his father held him and Derek limped on one leg slowly to the finish life.
Jim Redmond, Derek's father portrayed a significant role that day that has remained an iconic gesture of fatherhood many always look back on.
In a different report by YEN.com.gh, a young beautiful lady known as Nothando Mlambo on Twitter has indicated that she met the love of her life by simply deciding to answer a private message online.
Nothando made the revelation in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on her personal handle, which quickly went viral because of its relevance, controversy and teaching.
Answering private messages, which are popularly called DMs on social media, is a thing many ladies avoid as they get loads of them coming in.
