“First of all, I jumped over the barrier,”  then I sprinted onto the pitch but there were security guards running behind me and two coming from the other corner. I just sprinted.

“When I saw the other two, I ran towards the halfway line so I could swerve around them. They caught me and I was just screaming Ronaldo’s name.

“He turned around and he saw me and he was telling them to leave me. He came over to me. I was in shock and I was crying and I said ‘can I have your jersey please? I’m a big, huge fan.’ He was saying ‘are you okay?’

“When my dad saw him taking off the shirt, his face was in shock. I was like ‘oh my god, this is my dream and it’s finally coming true.’
