Cricket star Graeme Swann gets surprise from former teachers at Northampton school visit

Former England star Graeme Swann surprised Abington Vale pupils in their school assembly before his former teachers made an entrance and surprised him right back.

The Strictly Come Dancing Star was in town yesterday (June 27) to celebrate Yorkshire Tea National Cricket Week and inspire budding cricketers.

Swann reminisced about PE lessons with his former teachers, and shared an anecdote on how he was the only child able to climb the gym ropes.
