But did you get to meet him during a very special Sunderland event 12 years ago?

It was back in 2009 when Jordan Henderson mixed with youngsters who were on a visit to the University of Sunderland. The then Sunderland first team player had a go at table tennis, martial arts and took time to sign autographs.
