Whatever you’re up to today, hopefully you’re doing it as well as a quick-thinking ballboy for Tottenham Hotspur overnight.

The Premier League soccer club was up against the wall in its match against Greek side Olympiacos, having given up a 2-0 lead.

It was still down 2-1 when the ball went out of play in the second half. Enter the ballboy, who shot from his chair and handed over a replacement ball for the throw-in — a decisive move which proved to be the catalyst for an equalising goal (Spurs went onto win 4-2).

Along with providing some viral internet content, the young lad also got a personal hug from new Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho for his efforts.

Back in Australia and back to markets, the ASX200 was up 0.37 per cent to 6,813 points in midday trade. The Small Ords followed the big end of town higher to climb by 0.17 per cent to 2,893 points.

 

GOING UP

There were two big biotech updates, starting with Invion Limited (ASX:IVX) which jumped sharply after a pre-clinical study showed its Photosoft treatments “caused the immediate and specific death of tumour tissue” on mice with ovarian cancer.

And Prescient Therapeutics (ASX:PTX) announced it will expand its phase 1b study on patients with acute myeloid leukemia, after three patients (out of 15) “had total eradication of their cancer (complete response)”, the company said.
