Luis Suarez Makes Young Uruguyan Cancer-Sufferer’s Day With Surprise Hospital Video Call

By Chris Wright


In yet more ‘millionaire footballers not being complete dicks’ news, here’s a little video that is sure to moisten those darned cynical eyes of yours.

Having been diagnosed with cancer two year ago, young Uruguayan football fanatic Mateo was invited along to the Dr Perez Scremini Foundation in Montevideo to attend what he thought was a fairly routine video consultation with a Spanish specialist.

However, it just so happened that hidden behind the blank laptop screen was not a Spanish specialist, but rather one of Mateo’s absolute footballing idols.

After dropping a couple of hints, the mystery caller eventually revealed his true identity.

Cue: Instant tears…

How thoroughly lovely.
