Mateo after finding out he's talking to his hero. YouTube

Just look at the tears of joy on this kid's face when he's surprised by his footballing hero

This is a lovely gesture from Luis Suarez.

FOR REASONS THAT are often of his own making, Luis Suarez can be on the receiving end of a lot of negative press.

However, this video shows that he can be pretty sound, and it clearly means the world to Mateo — who, we’re told, has been battling cancer for two years — to get to see and speak with his hero.

Suarez, for his part, tells the youngster how brave he thinks he is and how he must keep fighting and it’s clear it means the absolute world to Mateo, especially when the striker says he’ll personally bring him a jersey when he returns to Uruguay.
