Paul Gregory follows Wednesday home and away – and is a familiar sight up and down the country – going topless whatever the weather.

From rainsoaked nights and freezing temperatures at Hillsborough, Mr Gregory never sports a shirt – no matter how cold it gets.

So we can only presume the 71 degree heat of Portugal must have been a little chilly for him – and that’s because he was spotted cheering on the Owls in a shirt ahead of tonight’s pre-season friendly in the Algarve.

The Star's Wednesday reporter Dom Howson clocked Tango among supporters at the 2,000 capacity Estadio da Nora in Albufeira where the Owls are taking on Shrewsbury Town.

Hundreds of passionate Wednesdayites having made the trip to Albufeira – where the temperature at kick-off time tonight was 21 degrees celsius – that’s nearly 70 Fahrenheit.

For comparison, it is 14 degrees celsius in Sheffield this evening.

In 2018, Tango caught the attention of TV viewers as he braved the Arctic conditions while cheering on the Owls in temperatures of -6 – without his shirt of course.

Tango was spotted wearing a shirt for a change.

Mr Gregory, aged 55, has had a season ticket at Hillsborough since 1979 and attends every game, home and away, despite living in Oxley, Wolverhampton.
