“100 is absolutely magnificent and to go to football… to your passion is something incredible. Many kisses, full of respect.”

Alf also received a bespoke Chelsea shirt featuring his name to remember this special occasion.

“Alf is amazingly independent,” Sneddon told the BBC. “He goes to the supermarket each week, does his own cooking, and his house is brilliantly tidy. He walks around where he lives most mornings to stay as fit as possible and does 20 squats each morning, holding onto his towel rail.

“I never cease to be amazed by how many people know Alf – many since his days of managing Newbury station. His brain is razor sharp, despite his great age, and, like many old people, his longer-term memory is superb.
