After Dan spoke to Manchester City professional Vincent about last year's FA Cup final win on BBC's Football Focus, he asked the football pro if he had his permission to lift the FA Cup trophy.

Dan asked Vincent: "This is technically yours, so you have the say here Vincent, am I allowed to lift the trophy?" to which he replied with: "Yes, go for it."

Once Vincent gave Dan the go-ahead, the star started to lift the trophy as he added: "Oh, can I? Oh well," to which Vincent interrupted him by warning up to "be careful" with the lid.

"Be careful with the lid. I think the first time I lifted it I dropped the lid on my head."
