Jack Grealish and his biggest fan, Finlay Fisher, spoke to each other this week, just a day after the Englishman kept his promise.
It’s a story that begins with a heart-warming letter sent by 11-year-old Finlay to the Manchester City striker.
“I wish there were more people in the world like you who treat people with disabilities the same as everyone else,” Finlay originally wrote.
“It makes me very happy to see that you, a famous football player, know what it’s like to live with people with cerebral palsy.”
“You are my hero and your sister’s older brother. My dream is to meet you and give you a high five. Imagine meeting your idol!”, the boy wrote.

Finlay, who is part of City’s Football Academy, soon received a shirt signed by Grealish. In fact, the Englishman went to CFA where Finlay plays every Monday as part of the disabled football team.
The pair meet and Jack tells Finlay he can choose his next goal celebration.
Finlay says he should perform the ‘worm’ dance when he scores – a move popularized by Scotty 2 Hotty, a popular wrestler in the 90s.
At the start of the call, Finlay says he thought Grealish had forgotten to perform the dance.
“I almost scored last week against Chelsea. And I thought, I’ll do it for him tonight,” the City striker replied.
