JK Rowling has declared herself the newest fan of American football team Seattle Seahawks.
The unexpected announcement came after the team’s cornerback Richard Sherman arrived at a press conference this week dressed in a full Harry Potter costume – including Gryffindor robes, a wand and round glasses.
Sherman threw himself into the part, playing Potter movie music from his phone and directing reporters’ questions using his wand.
Rowling loves a good Harry Potter tribute – and she was very impressed by Sherman’s effort.
Did I ever mention that I'm a #Seahawks fan? Well, I am.
