Australian actor Hugh Jackman has defended his beloved Norwich City in front of a panel on ESPN.

The X-Men star said: 'Let's face it, they're everyone's second team Norwich, they play such entertaining football.'

Although born in Australia, the actor has links to Norfolk through his mother: 'My Mum was born and bred in Norwich.'

Jackman has previously revealed how he visited her a number of times as a child and made a trip to Carrow Road when he was 16.

However, the Hollywood star was a year early when it came to Norwich City's past triumphs: 'Why don't we show the clip of us winning the Milk Cup in 1984?'
