Johannesburg – This young cricket fan got a chance to meet his hero and we’re not going to lie, the video had us a little emotional.  

14-year-old Leo Sadler was not happy when his idol AB de Villiers announced that he would be retiring from international cricket. But the young fan’s mother had a plan – she wrote into Gauteng-based radio station Jacaranda FM, explaining how unhappy her little boy was about the news.  

Jumping into action, the station’s breakfast team arranged for the young boy to meet with AB. Of course, he had no clue what was about to happen, which made it all the more special.  

Take a look at Leo’s emotional response when he met his hero.
