We are sure you can all remember Charlie Morgan – the self-proclaimed 'King of all Ball Boys' – who became an overnight sensation after an incident in the League Cup semi-final between Swansea and Chelsea in January.

In case you spent last season living on Mars, the 17-year-old Morgan managed to get Hazard sent off by purposely lying on a ball to help waste time during the contest.

The Belgian lost patience when Morgan refused to hand over the ball after it had gone out for a goal-kick. Morgan fell to the ground as Hazard attempted to get the ball from him, with the 22-year-old then trying to kick it from under him but appearing to instead make contact with the youngster.

The incident instantly became so iconic that a Subbuteo artist even recreated the moment while Morgan saw his twitter followers increase by tens of thousands.

Now Morgan has decided to put the jacket he wore on that fateful night up for sale on eBay.

Now before you start criticising Morgan for trying to cash-in on his somewhat questionable behaviour – it is worth pointing out that he is selling it for charity.

"The jacket has been donated by Charlie with all the profits from the sale going to Maggies Cancer charity and the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution), " the listing states.

Morgan has even autographed the jacket, which will be on sale on the online auction site for the next week.

As of 9:15 on Saturday morning, the highest bid was £255.
