Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho thanked a quick-thinking ball-boy for quickly feeding the ball back into play, leading to Harry Kane's equaliser in a 4-2 comeback win over Olympiacos.

Kane - who became the fastest player to score 20 goals in the competition (in just 23 matches) - equalised in the 50th minute for the home side who had trailed 2-0 at one stage.
With the ball rolling out of play, the ball-boy quickly ran towards the sideline and threw the ball to Serge Aurier who took a quick throw-in leading to Kane's goal.
"I love intelligent ball-boys like I was," Mourinho said.
"I was a brilliant ball-boy as a kid and this kid today was brilliant.
"Because he reads the game, he understands the game and he made an important assist so it's a good moment for him he'll never forget it.
Last season's Champions League finalists can now look forward to the knockout stages for a third straight season, but will go through in second place behind Bayern Munich in Group B after the German giants secured top spot with a 6-0 thrashing of Red Star Belgrade.
Spurs have now scored seven goals in winning Mourinho's first two games in charge to make a good first impression on many supporters unconvinced by the appointment of a former Chelsea manager renowned for a more conservative style of football.
