A boy with cystic fibrosis was given the chance to meet his footballing heroes.

Billy Hughes, from Radlett, was diagnosed with the condition when he was three weeks old.

Billy, along with a group of other supporters, were invited to see the first team squad put through their paces at the training ground on Monday.

Afterwards, there was the opportunity for pictures and autographs, with Ross Barkley, David Luiz and Willian among some of the famous face.

Billy’s mother, Nicky Hughes, said: "Billy has cystic fibrosis and he was diagnosed when he was three weeks old and so he’s on a very strict regime of medication to keep him healthy.

"He’s been going through a little rough patch lately so he’s been looking forward to today and it’s been amazing.

"It’s days like these that really perk him up when he isn’t at his best emotionally and so today has been a great day out for him."

It was organised by Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals, alongside the Chelsea Foundation.
