Rob Burrow positive as ever in Christmas message despite vandalism incident

It was reported earlier that Rob Burrow’s disability van had been subject to a possible act of vandalism, or at the very least scratched with no attempt to apologise, however in the spirit we’ve come to love he remains upbeat.

The former Leeds Rhinos’ legend has today continued to spread his messages of inspiration, positivity and hope, seemingly unphased at the damage done to his vehicle, as he tweeted a message of festive greetings to his followers.

Earlier this week Burrow won the Helen Rollason award at the Sports Personality of the Year awards this week for his inspirational attitude in his fight against Motor Neurone Disease.

Joined on stage by best mate Kevin Sinfield, who has raised over £7 million in fundraising for the neurological condition in honour of his former teammate, Burrow received the award for “outstanding achievements in the face of adversity” named after the former BBC journalist who sadly passed away following her battle with cancer.

To celebrate both the award and the festive season Burrow joined his family in a meal out, only for his purpose built van to be damaged which his dad, Geoff, took to twitter to inform fans.

Despite the obvious upset and trauma associated with being a victim of such thoughtless vandalism Burrow has today tweeted a Christmas message to his followers and fans, and seemingly remains as upbeat as ever.

Burrow will head into the New Year with plenty more positivity as he is set to look forward to the Leeds marathon, which has been named after him in his honour, that he will partake in alongside best mate Sinfield who will push Burrow around the 26.2 mile course.
