As the team bus was getting ready to leave for the match a little boy wearing a number 7 jersey – Ronaldo’s number – pushed past two security personnel to go near the player.
Despite one of them trying to grab him by the arm the tenacious kid broke through and reached Ronaldo who instinctively hugged him.
And what’s more, Ronaldo took the boy inside the team bus, apparently to introduce him to the other players in the team.
It was a dream come through for the young boy, and a video of the incident is going viral on social media after it was shared by the fan account ‘The CR7 Timeline’.
