Billy Sharp completed the Great South Run today - less than 24 hours after playing for Nottingham Forest.

The on-loan Saints striker played the full 90 minutes as Forest won 4-1 at Barnsley on Saturday afternoon – then completed the ten-mile course in Portsmouth in an impressive time of 71mins 33secs.

Sharp was running on the weekend of what would have been his late son's first birthday.

So far, his run has raised more than £1,400 for the Luey Jacob Sharp Foundation, set up in the wake of his son’s tragic death.

Saints fans gave their support by applauding during the 11th minute of today's defeat at home to Spurs, 11 being Sharp's shirt number. To sponsor Billy, visit
