10 Mar Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin surprises young fan with home visit
Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has surprised the young fan who held up a sweet sign during a game last year.
During December’s 3-2 win at Crystal Palace, a devoted supporter held up a sign which read ‘Bellerin I (heart) you xx’.
The Spain international immediately asked Twitter to help him track down the fan and now he has done so.
Writing on Instagram, Bellerin said: “After the Palace away game I saw a pic online of a young fan showing her love for me.
“So I posted on social media to help me find her. It worked!! I went and surprised the family with a visit to their home. Thank you everyone who got involved to make this happen.”
He also posted a video on his YouTube channel documenting his surprise visit to the the girl, called Claudia’s house, where he presented her with the shirt he wore during the Palace clash.
Bellerin goes on to play Mario Kart with the girl and her brother, Austin, as well as playing Arsenal Top Trumps with them.
