Spurs star Japhet Tanganga joined school children learning CPR in memory of a former Tottenham player who died from cardiac arrest.

Tanganga visited Riverley Primary School in Leyton on July 15 for a CPR lesson hosted by The JE3 Foundation.

It is now two years since the passing of much-loved former Spurs defender and Orient manager, Justin Edinburgh. Justin made 276 appearances for the club between 1990 – 2000, winning the FA Cup in 1991 and the League Cup in 1999.

In June 2019, he suffered a cardiac arrest and passed away at the age of 49.

Set up in his memory, The JE3 Foundation aims to support UK health heart charities and to campaign for legislative change – Justin’s Law – to make it compulsory for all health, fitness, and sports facilities to be equipped with a Public Access Defibrillator.

Alongside Year Five students, Japhet and Leyton Orient player Adam Thompson took part in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training to help raise awareness of cardiac arrests and give people the ability and confidence to save lives.

Charlie Edinburgh, Justin’s son, and founder of the JE3 Foundation, said: “Today has been a productive session with a fantastic group of pupils. Knowing that we have all come together to teach this wonderful group of pupils effective CPR and how to use a defibrillator fills me with confidence that we are doing some fantastic work in my fathers (Justin’s) memory, supported constantly by these two special football clubs.”

Japhet added: "The JE3 Foundation do incredible work and it is vital we continue to support them in their campaign for legislative change. After what happened to my former teammate Christian Eriksen this summer, educating people on how to administer CPR has never been so important.”
