'Special One' Oran meets Chelsea heroes

Chelsea's biggest fan got to meet his heroes once again after being personally invited by team captain John Terry to see the team train.

Superfan Oran Tully (14), from Skerries, north Dublin, travelled to Holland yesterday to see the team train.

He posed for photos alongside Terry and manager José Mourinho, as well as Cesc Fabregas.

"Thanks for inviting me down to training today, had a fantastic time meeting the players," a delighted Oran tweeted Terry afterwards.

He first met the former England captain last year at Stanford Bridge when he took part in My Special Day on Sky Sports.

The teenager, who was born with a small bladder which has resulted in life-threatening bowel failure, even managed to get the team's Russian owner, Roman Abramovich, to speak on camera for the first time ever. His family said the Chelsea games had "pulled him through all the many low points" of his illness.
