John Myatt took his son Zac to watch Liverpool's Community Shield match against Manchester City at Leicester City's King Power Stadium last Saturday to celebrate his ninth birthday. But it was after the match that Zac's dream became a reality, when he got to meet his favourite player Andy Robertson, who signed his cap and Liverpool shirt. John, 40, from Dingle, told the ECHO: "Everyone else was going [to buy] shirts and he said 'all I want to do is see if I can get Robbo to sign my shirt."

." Unbeknown to John, someone had filmed the moment an emotional Zac got his shirt signed, in the video which has been viewed over 100,000 times on Twitter and TikTok. Zac can be seen trying to hold back the tears in the video, before putting his hand to his mouth in shock. John said: "A few of my mates saw it and were texting me 'I'm sure that's your boy.' I can't believe he played all that game and still came over to him. It's changed everything for this little lad. "It's just made his birthday, I don't know how I'm going to top that next year. I think Robbo has made a friend for life."
