You must have a heart of stone if you're not incredibly touched by this.

Newly signed FC Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas made a young fan's dreams come true when he gifted him his boots and football after an intense training session.

The little boy's reaction was gloriously spontaneous.

 

 

It would appear that the legendary goalie is more popular among the fans of his new side than he was with the majority of supporters inside the Bernabeu shortly before he exited Real Madrid over the summer.

The little boy burst into tears when he realised that the prized items were his.

Luckily Mum stepped in to administer a much needed hug

It may be a regular gesture by mega-star footballer but it meant everything to this young fan.

Casillas left Spanish giants Real Madrid in July following over 700 appearances for the legendary club.
