Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was determined to make it up to the little boy who was injured after running out in front of the footballer's car recently. So straight after a Tuesday training session the midfielder hot-footed it over to see ten-year-old Jamie Hellawell, bearing a special gift - a pair of signed soccer boots.
The footwear in question wasn't autographed by 27-year-old Steven, however. Instead they bore the name of the youngster's sporting hero - Steven's England teammate Wayne Rooney.
And there were more surprises in store for the thrilled youngster, who also received a red England shirt, signed by the whole squad, and a VIP invitation to come and watch a match at Anfield and Old Trafford.
"I was worried about you," Steve told the youngster, who suffered a broken leg after dashing out in front of the player's slowly moving Bentley as he left school.
