When football legend Cristiano Ronaldo led his Portugal teammates out of the tunnel for the Confederations Cup match against Russia this week he had a very special fan attached to his hand.
Accompanying Ronaldo to the field was a young girl in a wheelchair who was greeted with thousands of cheers from Moscow’s Spartak Stadium as she came out of the tunnel holding hands with Cristiano.
Before kick-off he gave his number one fan his warm-up jacket and a kiss on the forehead after she joined the team for the pre-match presentations.
The final score was 1-0 to Portugal.
Cristiano Ronaldo was diagnosed with a racing heart at the age of 15 which could had ended his football career.
