David Beckham delighted superfan Moin Younis when he presented the 17-year-old with a Pride Of Britain Award, in scenes set to air on tonight’s show.
The 42-year-old football ace announced to Moin that he was being feted with the Child/Teenager of Courage Award amid his battle against a rare genetic skin disorder which causes the skin to blister or bleed at the slightest touch.
The teen, who accepted his gong at the POB ceremony last month, was so stunned by the arrival of his hero, that he revealed he could not stop talking about David’s hair – which he has recently grown into a long, blond bob.
Moin has defied medics over the years and remains an active and positive inspiration to others, as he has committed himself to making life better for those also suffering by becoming an ambassador for Acorns charity.
As he sat in a changing room at Wembley alongside iconic Aston Villa player Peter McPartlin, he cheekily revealed he had David’s phone number.
Moin then discussed his love of football great David, saying: ‘I’ve always been a big fan of David Beckham. I think it’s his passion for the game’, after which he was put on the phone despite thinking he wouldn’t pick up.
The startled youth appeared aghast as he said: ‘Is this really… erm hello. Am I supposed to believe this is David Beckham?’, to which the star confirmed: ‘It really is David Beckham. I’ve heard you’re a keen football fan.’
