    Corrie star Simon Gregson has admitted feeling 'heartbroken' because his teenage son isn't being recognised for his sporting talents.

    The 49-year-old soap star, who plays Steve McDonald on the ITV soap, revealed that he was upset because his 16-year-old son Alfie isn't getting enough recognition on the football pitch. The proud dad took to Instagram with a night-time snap showing Alfie sat on top of a football and checking his phone.

    He wrote: "My boy since 4 yrs old dreaming of playing football for a living. [He] plays for three teams trains every day and night and no one has seen him my heart breaks every day." (sic)"

    Another said: "It’s hard but he’s got a great attitude so it will pay off he just needs that one break." A third commented: "Ian Wright [Former Arsenal striker] wasn't spotted until he was 21. Never give up hope."

    A fourth added: "He’ll be recognised for his skills and talent, no doubt, until then I really hope he’s enjoying every second of the process. Cause that’s the part that matters."
