Henry Wyndham, from Lowestoft, had cheered the Canaries on to a 1-0 victory on Saturday and was driving past County Hall at around 9pm when his car broke down.

While waiting in the rain for roadside assistance a small black car pulled over.

Mr Wyndham said: “The guy wound down his window and asked if I was okay, and it was Tom Trybull.

“I said RAC were on their way, though I’m not sure he knew what that meant.

“Then I told him he should sign a new contract. I’m not sure why I said that, but I wasn’t expecting the only person to pull over and ask if I was okay to be Tom Trybull. He then smiled and drove off.”

Mr Wyndham eventually made it home at around 1am.

He added: “It was a long day but at least I got a nice story out of it.”
