An eight-year-old QPR fan of AN rang the bell at half-time against Bournemouth to mark the end of his blood cancer battle.
Felix Martineau was a special guest at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium and was joined on the field with his big sister.
Both were given a standing ovation and were cheered on as they rang bells during the emotional scenes.
Felix was recently fully cleared after a three-year battle with leukemia.
To signal the end of such treatment, patients often ring the bell at the hospital and recite a poem.
But QPR gave him the chance to step on the field and do the same and fans on Twitter praised the heartwarming move.
One said: “Absolutely incredible moment for the boy and his family. Oh, and what an amazing sister!”
Another said: “Absolutely amazing, what a brave boy and great moment for him and his sister.”
One added: “Very special moment.”
