AMMAN — Olympic taekwondo gold medallist Ahmad Abu Ghaush on Wednesday paid a surprise visit to the Jordan U-17 football team preparing to take on the world’s best at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The girls will be playing Spain in Friday’s opener and were delivered some words of advice and encouragement from the history maker.

“I received incredible support from Jordan during the Olympics so I was only too willing to show my support to the girls when the Jordan Olympic Committee asked me.”

Abu Ghaush just returned to light training following his gold medal winning performance in Rio de Janeiro on August 18.

“I told them that we are all right behind them and that all they can do is try their very best. Win or lose they are already our heroes,” he said.
