Palestinian firebomb survivor meets hero Ronaldo


MADRID: A Palestinian boy who survived a firebombing by Jewish extremists that killed his parents and baby brother was greeted by Real Madrid’s stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, on Thursday.

Five-year-old Ahmed Dawabcheh has been recovering from his injuries over the past eight months.
Moved by images of the bandaged boy wearing a Real Madrid jersey, Palestinians campaigned for months on social media to persuade the team to meet Ahmed.

And his dream came true as he posed for photos and had a Real shirt christened with own name on the back signed by the club’s Galacticos, including three-time World Player of the Year Ronaldo and Welsh star Bale.
