Ben Shephard and Charlotte Hawkins fight back tears on Good Morning Britain over viral clip of young rugby player

BEN Shephard and Charlotte Hawkins fought back tears on today’s Good Morning Britain as they watched a viral video of an inspirational young rugby player.

The moving clip sees a youngster doubt his ability on the field, until his pal steps forward and gives him a motivational speech.

The worried player is heard telling his coach: "Everyone's older than me, everyone's bigger than me!”

His teammate takes matters into his own hands and tells him: "Listen to me. Trust me. Look at me, Bob. I am the shortest kid here, it doesn't matter if you're short, if you're young. It doesn't matter if you're tall, or if you are fat here," he said.

"You are a brilliant rugby player. Do you understand that? You are insane! You are actually insane for your age. Right, give me a hug."

The coach, who was clearly blown away by the moment, can be heard saying: “Best teammate ever.”
