QPR striker Jay Bothroyd has revealed meeting a terminally ill teenager has had a profound effect on his life.
Bothroyd met 15-year-old Alice Pyne - who is suffering from cancer and has published her Bucket List of things she would like to do while still alive - at the Inspiration Awards for women.
England centre forward Bothroyd said: "Alice is an amazing, brave girl, what her family have been through puts everything into perspective.
"I want to help the family in any way I can. When I go out onto the pitch I will be thinking of her."
