The Swansea ball boy who was at the centre of an incident involving Chelsea's Eden Hazard which saw the footballer charged with violent conduct is selling the official jacket he was wearing for charity.

The incident in January led to Hazard being charged by the FA charged with violent conduct and sparked a public outcry after the footballer appeared to kick the boy in the ribs near the end of a Capital One Cup semi final.

Charlie Morgan now appears to be selling the jacket he was wearing during the incident in aid of Maggie's cancer centres and the RNLI on ebay.
