Here's a heartwarming tale if there ever was one.
Spanish side Villarreal let a 13-year-old cancer patient play for them in a charity match against Celtic last night, and he even scored!
Young Gohan's dream came true when he kicked off the match for the Yellow Submarines against the Scottish champions at El Madrigal. He then embarked on a mazy run before putting the ball past goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska.
The proceeds from the match will go towards a three-year research project aimed at helping children like him who live with the disease.
