A green-fingered England fan is rooting for Jude Bellingham - by transforming his garden into the star's number 10 shirt.

Bryn Nicholls created the 20ft patriotic lawn mural at his home in Stourbridge, where the England star was born and raised.

Retired postie Bryn spent hours painstakingly painting the grass in his front garden red, white and blue to create the England shirt.

The 66-year-old said: "It took me a while to emulsion the grass but it was worth the effort.

“Jude Bellingham was brought up around here so he’s a local lad. We’re all very proud of him and hope he can help England win the Euros.

"A lot of people come and take photographs, they always do.

"I definitely think England can beat the Netherlands and then go and take on the Spanish on Sunday.

"We're a strong team with great players like Bellingham. Everyone is rooting for them."

Bryn, who has three grown-up children and two grandchildren, decorates his lawn for most national events.

In 2022 he transformed the patch of grass into a giant Union Jack flag with a crown in the centre to mark the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

In 2012 he painted the Olympic rings to celebrate the Games being hosted in the UK.
