It’s a story that touched hearts around the world – and it’s about to do it again.
Remember this boy?
Murtaza Ahmadi is a 6-year-old from Afghanistan who became a social media star at the beginning of 2016 after a photo of him wearing a Lionel Messi jersey made from a plastic bag went viral.
A major social media campaign succeeded in finding the boy and sending him a shirt signed by the Barcelona striker.
In a sad update in May, We learned that his family was forced to flee to Pakistan.
But now, more happy news, as the little boy and his hero meet face to face.
