Ipswich: Six-week-old Tyler is a London 2012 veteran

HE is just six-weeks-old, but tiny Tyler Tawell has already experienced one of the greatest shows on earth.

The adorable little tot, who lives with his family in Ipswich, enjoyed a trip to the Olympic Park’s Copper Box for a series of Handball matches, last week.

His proud parents, Rachel Johns, 25, and Benjamin Tawell, 24, think he may be the youngster fan to venture to this year’s sporting extravaganza.

Donning a Team GB baby grow and matching hat, Tyler was there to sport the men’s GB handball team as they took on France last week.

Miss Johns, who gave birth on June 25, said it would be something they would remember forever.
