FOR many who were inspired by Steve Prescott's brave battle with cancer, this image of his son will bring a lump to the throat and a tear to the eye.

Ten years ago, Steve took on the challenge of delivering the match ball to Wembley Stadium after taking on a 900 mile cycle ride from Perpignan in France to Windsor, 26 mile Dragonboat row to Teddington and a half marathon to Wembley.

Steve and his team arrived in time for the rugby league Challenge Cup final between Huddersfield Giants and Warrington Wolves.

Now, his 17-year-old son Taylor Prescott is following in his father’s footsteps, with the same challenge.

Today he had his picture taken in the same spot in Cahors, France where his dad's now iconic photograph was taken a decade ago during the challenge.

The image has been shared by general manager of The Steve Prescott Foundation, Martin Blondel, who said: "10 yrs ago @StevePrescott1 cycled thru #Cahors on way to #Wembley we are elated @t_prescott1 continued his fathers amazing legacy by cycling thru and emulating this famous pose on way to this year’s @TheChallengeCup @Saints1890 v @WarringtonRLFC @PDigitalLtd"
