How Twitter reacted to Spurs’ hat-trick hero in week to remember
Tottenham’s Harry Kane must have enjoyed every minute of his sensational breakthrough season so far, but few weeks will top one where he celebrated an England call-up with a maiden Premier League hat-trick.
It was only on these very pages just a few days before England’s new striker downed Leicester with his three-goal display, that we identified the stonking value in Kane’s 4/1 price to finish the season as the Premier League’s top goalscorer.
He’s now shrunk to 6/4 favourite in the market having nudged one in front of Diego Costa and in the wake of an incredible few days for the 21-year-old, Twitter was in understandably praiseworthy mood.
Here are some of the best tweets:
What better place to start than the man of the moment himself, the retweets just keep on growing.

England have scored a try already. I think it may have been Harry Kane.
