A lovestruck soccer fan has been reunited with the girl of his dreams after appealing to a railway firm for help to find her.
Angus Mainland, 19, met the mystery girl – who he says has an Italian accent – while travelling to watch his team Crystal Palace beat Southampton 3-2 in the FA Cup on Saturday.
However, after he got off the train he realised he had forgotten to ask for her name or phone number.
Mainland posted a picture of him and the girl wearing his Palace scarf with the message “Please help me find the girl I sat next to on the 12.45 from Bournemouth to Southampton. Fell in love” to Cross Country trains.
The message was retweeted 3 000 times and on Monday Mainland announced he was back in contact with the girl.
He tweeted: “You can call off the search. I’ve found her and am talking to her! She’s taken it very well!”
Mainland is a sports management student from London.
