Video: A very young Dele Alli stars in a driving lesson

It’s hard not to like Dele Alli.

The 19-year-old has taken the Premier League by storm since making the mammoth leap from the MK Dons to Spurs this season.

Many are even comparing him to the great Steven Gerrard.

When he’s not bursting a lung in midfield or scoring crucial goals for Spurs, he comes across as a genuinely lovely young man.

As well as everything else, he loves a good wave…

Yes, he is an absolutely top-notch waver – and doesn’t he just know it!

But it wasn’t always Premier League goals and waving for Alli. One of the great things about the England international is that he started from the bottom and worked his way up.

Now footage has emerged of a very young Alli starring in a 45-minute long driving video. That’s right, it’s just the youngster in a car, with his instructor, driving around on wet roads.

He is introduced as an ‘MK Dons and England Under-17 footballer’, who is having a 6-hour refresher before his second test (he failed the first). These are the ‘highlights’…

Never change Dele – and whatever you do, never stop waving!
