JK Rowling has won the hearts of avid readers with her Harry Porter novels which defined the childhoods of many millennials, and the adaptations of which were made on-screen as well starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in lead roles.

While the authoress has made a tremendous impact worldwide with her writing skills, it might not be known to many that she is also a passionate football fan. As per reports, it has been learned that she is a huge fan of the Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur popularly known as 'Spurs'.

Meanwhile, Rowling has also liked a post on social media which was titled as the 'GOAL OF THE CENTURY'.

JK Rowling the football fan

It so happened that former English footballer Sean Philip O'Hanlon had posted a video of two kids recreating a few iconic moments of some of the best goals that have been scored in the history of the game and it also includes Argentine legend Diego Maradona's epic 'Hand of God' moment which had come against England during the 1986 FIFA World Cup quarter-final. Not only did those kids recreate those moments but also carried out their signature celebrations after each goal.

Nonetheless, what really stood out here was that of the Harry Potter authoress making her presence felt and liking the post. It's not Quidditch but take a look.

The contenders for the Goal of the Century according to the video include Portuguese megastar Cristiano Ronaldo's goal against Portsmouth in 2008, Brazilian legend Ronaldo's 1998 goal against Lazio and Robin Van Persie's goal against Spain in 2014, etc.

Piers Morgan happens to like it as well:

 Coming back to football action, all the major leagues like the Premier League, FA Cup, Bundesliga, La Liga, etc. have been postponed due to the global pandemic whereas, the global sporting events like the UEFA Euro Cup and the Tokyo Olympic Games have been postponed to the summer of 21.
