A female Chelsea fan was overwhelmed with emotion as she met her favourite player N’Golo Kante after training.
The club’s latest Community Day saw a number of fans invited to come and watch their heroes get put through their paces before meeting them afterwards for pictures and autographs.
And Telamsile Dlamini, referred to the Blues by the Willow Foundation – the onlynational charity working with seriously ill young adults to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
Chelsea took to Twitter to share a video of the 21-year-old wiping away a tear as she watched on at the Cobham Training Centre before she was greeted by midfielder Kante.
“That moment I stepped foot on that training section where we were waiting,” she said.
“I can’t believe that I’m here, no, no, it’s not me that is here it’s just. No way, no way, I’m not here, it’s not me, it’s just not me. But actually, it was me.
“Today was very special because I got to meet my favourite football player, N’Golo Kante.”
