Richmond gave Dustin Martin permission to fly abroad to visit his father in April, when the travel bubble began.

The pair shared a close bond, but did not meet each other for the 12 months prior to their visit due to travel restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic.

“It was a big challenge, but that’s what it is,” Martin told Fox Footy in March.

“I love my dad and he made me me today. I completely believe he will come back here to see us win another flag ..

“It’s my dream to take the old man (to the stand) with the whole family and see Tiges win another flag.”
