A seriously ill young Chelsea fan had his "world made" when he was given the chance to meet his heroes at Stamford Bridge.
Harvey Shailes, 13, has suffered from juvenile arthritis since he was three years old. He met his heroes including Eden Hazard, David Luiz and Willian at a Chelsea Foundation Christmas dinner on Thursday (December 7).
"Harvey was desperate to go to school and show all his friends the selfies he took but today is his monthly transfusion," Harvey's step-father Mark Groves told getwestlondon.
"Harvey's a really special boy and he goes through a lot without ever complaining," he continued.
"Today he's had to go to Great Ormond Street and he'll be there all day for his transfusion and injections as well as MRIs.
"He was diagnosed at the age of three so this is all the life he's known really."
The once in a lifetime meeting with some of the world's most talented footballers came as a result of the efforts of Harvey's mother Rachael Shailes and uncle Rob Moles.
Rachael accompanied Harvey to Stamford Bridge but he entered the room with all the Chelsea players on his own.
Once his side all his heroes met him one-on-one.
"There is no bigger Chelsea fan than Harvey and he got to meet his absolute hero Eden Hazard," said Mark.
"He told me all the players were incredibly nice and spoke with the children, taking all the selfies they wanted and signing postcards.
"The player he enjoyed talking with the most N'golo Kante, who shared some tips with Harvey.
"Harvey loves playing football but is, of course, limited in the things he can do, but he plays in a similar position to Kante so he enjoyed that the most.
"You can probably tell by the smile he has on his face in that picture."
