A delivery driver in the UK says an eight-year-old girl  "made my day,' after she learned to say have a good day in sign language. 

Eight-year-old Tallulah, from Ashton-Under-Lyne in Manchester, saw neighbourhood delivery driver Tim Joseph working throughout the coronavirus lockdown.

She wanted to express her gratitude for his hard work and learned sign language so she could greet him.

At the start of lockdown, the little girl drew Tim a rainbow picture saying, ‘thank you,’ which has been hung on his van ever since.

“Tallulah realised I was deaf and then one day she surprised me when she signed to me, 'have a good day',” he told the BBC.

Tallulah’s mum Amy Roberts shared a video on Twitter showing the moment the eight-year-old greeted the delivery driver with the words ‘have a good day’ in sign language.

He then showed her how to sign ‘good morning, have a good day.’ "She signed it perfectly and it absolutely made my day," Joseph said.
