BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Eddie Izzard says Big Thank You

Eddie Izzard says Big Thank You

Comedian, multi-marathoner and Join In patron Eddie Izzard takes the time to call Dean, a football coach who has been volunteering for his local club for five years.

The phone call took place in a special gold phone box on the red carpet at 2014 Sports Personality of the Year in Glasgow.

Throughout the evening, sports stars and members of the public from across the UK showed their gratitude to the unsung heroes at local sports clubs as part of the Big Thank you weekend.
