Whoever said you should never meet your heroes obviously didn't look up to Connacht out-half Jack Carty.

Twitter user Robert Quinn has shared a heartwarming interaction that his son had with the number ten, with Carty doing his best to cheer up the 14-year-old, kicking the ball around with him before giving him one of his Connacht jerseys.

Quinn was delighted with Carty's gesture, calling the out-half a 'bloody gentleman', and posted the hand-written note the rugby star included with the gift.

"Was really great meeting you today, I don't think our meeting was by chance," Carty wrote.

"Always remember to keep the head up, don't mind people who are jealous of you and your soccer skills! At your age I wish I had as good a right foot.

"If you are ever on holiday in Connemara again and get bored (which is very easy to happen) I would love for you and your family to come to a Connacht match.

"Hope you enjoy the kit!"
