A dedicated Norwich City fan has taken his first flight and travelled more than 5,800 miles to visit Carrow Road and see his beloved team get promoted.

Later today Norwich fans from across the world will meet at Carrow Road to take part in the Global Canaries parade during half-time of City's match against Sheffield Wednesday.

Among them will be Lucas La Torre, who, having come some 5,860 miles from Rio de Janeiro, will have travelled further than most to be at the match.

The 24-year-old marketing content creator said he was glad he had made the journey after being invited by the club to attend the Global Canaries parade.

He said: 'It was my first time travelling by plane, but I'm glad my [first flight] was to Norwich'.
