Dustin Martin has spoken to his deported father, Shane, for the first time in a post-match interview live on 3AW Football.

Dusty spoke to the 3AW Football team straight after the team song, but when he later heard Shane Martin was on the line, he was quick to jump back on the microphone.

“I wish you were here,” Martin said in an emotional interview.

Shane: What the… How good is that, hey?!

Dusty: I thought you were going to swear for a second there! I love ya, I wish you were here.

Shane: “I wish I was there too, my boy, but you know what, all the best … I’m proud of ya!

Dusty: “We’ll do it again next year and hopefully you’re there.”

Earlier, Dustin Martin was joined by mum Cathy in an interview on 3AW Football.

“This is a dream,” he said. “We’re living it.”

“Mum can say a couple of words today.”
