Spurs red faced following Gretzky gaffe

Posted on October 2, 2015

Bosses at Premier League football team Tottenham Hotspur were forced to apologise to ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky after handing him a shirt that spelled his name incorrectly.

What’s more, the blunder occurred at a ceremony performed just before a derby match with their bitter rivals Arsenal on September 23.

Gretzky, who is nicknamed “The Great One”, is hailed as the best hockey player of all time; he’s the leading scorer in National Hockey League history, and is the only player to have ever scored more than 2,000 points in a single season. The 54-year-old was renowned for dodging brutal body checks, and dominating the area behind the opponent’s goal, which was nicknamed “Gretzky’s office”.

The Canadian attended White Hart Lane, Spurs’ home ground, and was handed the shirt by Ledley King, a former captain of the team who was charged with the honour. With typical Canadian politeness, Gretzky posed smiling with King in front of a barrage of cameras, and gave no indication that the spelling error (‘Gretsky’) had ruffled his feathers.

As the picture began to show up on Twitter news feeds everywhere, the team took down its tweets and issued a profuse apology to their guest. The Ontario native was gracious in his reply:

Unfortunately, the damage had been done. To round off a miserable day for the club, Arsenal won the match 2-1.
