Mike and Zara's eight-year-old was photographed cheering her dad on from the dugout as he took to the field as part of the Battle of the Balls fundraiser football match between Gloucester City Legends and Rugby for Heroes in Gloucester.

Mia cheered her dad on from the sidelines

Mike is a proud father, although he's also very down-to-earth in his approach to parenting and often shares insights into his family life on the podcast he co-hosts, The Good, The Bad & The Rugby.

Mia has shared her mother and grandmother Princess Anne's passion for horse riding since she was very young, having started lessons at the age of just two.
