Romelu Lukaku visits TNT Express employee in Belgium


3 June 2014 - The international football player Romelu Lukaku (21) made a surprise visit in May to a TNT Express employee, Marina van Laeken (47) in TNT’s office in Zaventem. He wanted to thank Marina, his best friend’s mother, for her support during his childhood years in Wintam (Bornem), a Belgian village.

The scene was captured for the national TV show “Iedereen Beroemd” (or Everybody’s Famous), which aired yesterday on Één.

The Chelsea player, who will defend the Belgian colours at the World Cup in Brazil, used to practice football in the garden of Marina’s house. Marina recalled how Romelu literally flattened the garden, “destroying everything” from flowers to furniture.
