AFL grand final: Levi Ablett steals hearts as Geelong Cats enter MCG cauldron for grand final

Geelong captain Joel Selwood has carried Gary Ablett’s son Levi with him onto the MCG in a moving moment just minutes before the grand final.

Selwood took the youngster, who suffers from a rare degenerative illness, out of his legendary father’s arms and through the Geelong banner.

Selwood flagged the move yesterday as an extra tribute to the fabled Geelong family, who he said they hadn’t paid enough tribute too with Ablett Jnr retired at the end of 2019.
