Football fever has well and truly gripped the nation and a proud England fan carrying out deliveries around Kent is bringing a smile to his customers' faces.
Dressing up as St George, the knight in shining armour is Lewis Spencer who says he's so happy to see people enjoying the success of Gareth Southgate's team reaching the Euro 2020 final against Italy.
The 56-year-old from Gravesend donned the outfit for the historic 2-1 victory over Denmark while watching the game at home on Wednesday.
Lewis, who has decorated his house in flags, says he put on the costume three hours before semi-final before joking with his wife that if England won he would wear it to work the next day.
The delivery driver for Broadditch Farm Shop in Southfleet has been carrying out his deliveries for the past two days.
He said: "It's a bit hot but if people know me then they know what I'm like. But it's mad isn't it.
"I do a lot of the events here and I'm used to dressing up."
"It's made a lot of people smile and it's made me smile – it's been fun."
When he woke up on Thursday morning, his wife Tina had laid out the knight's garb for him.
"It was on the bed and she said, 'well go on then'," Lewis said.
"I was only going to wear it for one day but the response has been brilliant. It's made a lot of people smile and it's made me smile – it's been fun.
"It's been such doom and gloom and just to do something silly it makes a difference."
On Sunday, Lewis says he will be going live on his Facebook profile to sing a rendition of Sweet Caroline dressed as St George to mark the Neil Diamond hit becoming the unofficial fans' anthem of 2021.
It's not a new experience for Lewis, who dressed up in different costumes for five nights during lockdown performing songs and karaoke hits and raising money for ellenor hospice.
"I want to give a special mention to my wife," Lewis added. "She's helping me with the filming and in so many ways and she's the one making me do it."
Lewis says the football has been incredible to bring people together and cheer up the nation and hopes people "will be talking about it for years" if the Three Lions win the Euros at Wembley on Sunday evening.
