Popular Big Issue vendor Clive has been inundated with well-wishes after news that he had passed his GCSES at the age of 58 touched the hearts of thousands on social media.
Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford and Only Fools and Horses actor John Challis are among those who congratulated Clive after he achieved a 5 in English language and maths at City College Plymouth.
The 58-year-old, who has sold The Big Issue for 14 years and is a popular figure on his pitch outside Theatre Royal Plymouth, has turned his life around after battling addiction and homelessness.
Speaking after receiving his results on Thursday, Clive said: “This is a massive leap for me. I feel like I’ve been to Eton or something. I never expected to do it.”
The Big Issue shared the jubilant moment Clive received his results and it inspired an enormous response on social media.
