The Texan multi-millionaire visited the grounds of the Atam Academy, in Barley Lane, Little Heath, on Friday, October 12.

Two trainers from the club led the school children in a series of football drills and activities before around 100 Year 1 and 2s gathered to ask Mr Teague their burning questions.

Academy director Tasveer Singh said: “One question asked was ‘Why do you think you are important?’”

“He said, among other things, ‘because I feel I have been able to give back to society – it is not all about money,’”

Tasveer said that Mr Teague’s message was in keeping with the school’s ethos that perseverance and hard-work will lead to success.

The Atam Academy has partnered with the Leyton Orient Trust, a charity which provides coaching and classes to schools across east London.
