He has travelled 6000 miles from Hong Kong to see the Norwich City play this weekend - but Canary fans could be forgiven for being a little nervous at his arrival.

For David Lee can't recall the last time he saw a Norwich win.

The Canary super-fan makes the 13-hour flight each year to see his favourite team and has crammed five matches into his two-week trip this time round.

'I can't recall the last time I saw a Norwich win to be honest,' he said.

He first began supporting Norwich in 1992, because the club's badge reminded him of two lovebirds he had when he was young. 'I kept a cage of lovebirds and it looked similar to the Canaries, also the yellow and green colour caught my eyes!'

Mr Lee, 40, will be in the city until October 26.

While he is here he has tickets to matches at Rotherham, Fulham, Leeds in the EFL Cup and two Under-23 games at Carrow Road.
