Murtaza Ahmadi has today met his hero.
The 6-year-old caught the attention of the Internet earlier this year when he was photographed wearing a plastic bag with ‘Messi 10′ written across the back.
Thanks to a meeting set up in Qatar by the country’s 2022 World Cup Supreme Committee, Messi arrived in Doha early this morning to sit down with his biggest fan.
A video has now been released of the pair, featuring the Barcelona ace and Murtaza hugging and smiling for photos.
It is a truly touching scene, as the young boy could never have expected his simple tribute to his icon actually resulting in the pair coming face to face.
But that is exactly what has happened, with the smile on Messi’s face throughout proceedings once again proving the humility and class of the world’s finest player.
