Two rugby heroes paid a special bedside visit to an inspirational teenager.
Freddie Theobald, 16, from Langdon Hills, spent time with England star and Saracens’ rugby fly-half Owen Farrell, and team-mate Ben Ransom, while undergoing hospital tests.
The teenager has been suffering from mystery seizures for 18 months, but doctors have been unable to discover if they are connected to his brain or heart.
In a bid to find out if he has epilepsy, Freddie underwent intensive tests at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London.
Owen and Ben paid a surprise visit to pledge support for a hospital charity race and meet youngsters who will benefit.
Freddie’s proud mum, Jane, said: “Freddie began having seizures in December 2012, and for the last year-and-a-half he has been undergoing loads of tests.
“He spent three days at Great Ormond Street while doctors tried to see if he was suffering from epilepsy, and he never would have expected to get up close with Saracens’ players.
