To get autographed jerseys, a father invented serious illnesses for his son

Last Tuesday, at 10 a.m., Thomas Félix (@FlexiLeGenie) therefore posted the film, once edited, on social networks. “The video worked really well. We see the request of the little one, suffering from leukemia, the moment when he watches the video that our player Maxime Blanc made for him, and finally the sequence in which he is very happy to receive the jersey.

The communication and ticketing manager at Bourg-en-Bresse Péronnas 01 was far from imagining what would happen next. “Around 2 p.m., my counterpart from the Quevilly Rouen Métropole club, which plays in Ligue 2, saw the video and said to me: ‘There is a problem here. I’ve seen that little one’s face before.’ After some research, he did find a video of the child that had been sent to him, in which the young teenager said that he lived in Rouen, that he had moved and that he had a heart condition, this time . That’s where it all started.”

Thomas Félix then quickly deletes the video from social networks, but the case has already grown. “AJ Auxerre called me and said: “We got the same”. Ditto for the clubs of Chambly, Montpellier, AS Monaco, Stade de Reims and others..
