FORMER BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey shared a picture with a fan on a train on Monday morning, claiming he had "inspired" him through his High Performance Podcast.

The 44-year-old announced back in May that he was leaving as host of the channel's Champions League coverage after a decade on the platform – in which he had also presented Premier League games for many years.

Since departing BT Sport – who have since become TNT Sports – Humphrey has focused on his podcast, which he hosts alongside Professor Damian Hughes.

And he made reference to the show on Monday when sharing a snap alongside a young fan, Jordan, who Humphrey says was inspired to pursue graphic design by listening to an episode with Reims manager Will Still.

Humphrey and the fan smiled for the photo taken on the former Formula One host's phone.

Alongside the image, Humphrey added: "This is Jordan. Just met him on the train to London…and today is a big day for him.

"He starts a new job as a Graphic Designer, and has been inspired to ignore the naysayers, critics and negative messages…by listening to the High Performance Podcast.

"I love little moments like this. It's a reminder why we do it, and the responsibility that comes with it.

"Also, massive shout to Reims Manager Will Still – Jordan says it was your episode that made him this 'f*** it, I'm going for this'.

"Good luck Jordan!!!

Last week, Humphrey hinted at a potential return to presenting F1 in the future.

Sharing a snap of himself at the 2011 Motorsport Hall of Fame alongside Murray Walker and Frank Williams, he wrote: "What a joy that job was.

"Still feels like unfinished business. #F1."

When Humphrey left BT Sport at the end of last season, fans cringed at a tribute video that was posted as the presenter prepared to leave the company.
