Cristiano Ronaldo took the time this morning to make the day of a happy young Manchester United supporter on his way to training.
The fan caught the attention of the superstar with a homemade sign outside the entrance to United’s Carrington complex.
And after Ronaldo briefly tucked into his £170,000 Lamborghini, the supporter, Callum, was able to snap a photo he’ll remember for the rest of his life.

His message, written on a piece of cardboard, read: ‘Ronaldo, can you please stop? It would make my weekend.’
There was also a picture of his idol plastered on the top and all his dreams soon came true as Ronaldo stopped for the selfless gesture.
It is typically believed that the veteran forward was the first United player to report for training the day before their clash with West Ham.
It’s no wonder that members of the fanbase are so desperate to meet Ronaldo, especially in light of his great start to life in his second stint.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus talisman has already scored three goals, one against Newcastle and one against Young Boys.
That confrontation, however, left United reeling after a shocking defeat, and Ronaldo made an annoyed impression on the pitch and then on the sidelines.
After being knocked out in the second half, Ronaldo occasionally slipped behind manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the dugout to bark instructions.
His antics have been called into question by his former team-mate Rio Ferdinand, who says he would have told the all-time great to take the bench.

“If I’m the manager I have to be honest, I tell him to sit down,” Ferdinand told BT Sport during their post-match report in the midweek.
‘I get it. You know, with Cristiano people say, “Oh, it’s bravado, it’s for the fans”. He’s just a passionate man. He wants to win, he’s desperate to win, and he can’t hold it back.
“If that means he has to go up there and stand next to the manager, yell instructions etc etc, then so be it.
“If it’s someone of his stature and stature, how can you argue with that?”

Ronaldo is expected to start again against West Ham if United are to maintain his spot at the top of the league table, and will be relied upon to make a big impact.
But Jamie Carragher, in his column for… The Telegraph, has wondered if his United homecoming will bring them closer to aspiring to the title.
“Despite all the understandable euphoria at Old Trafford with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, his signing causes as many problems as it solves for Solskjaer,” he said.
“Ronaldo could prove to be a better asset to the Premier League than to Manchester United.”
