A WHITEHEAD schoolboy had a very special birthday surprise on a recent trip to Spain.

Alex Norris not only got to meet former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo but was presented with the Real Madrid star’s football shirt.

Dad Keith explained: “Alex met Cristiano and he presented him with his match shirt form the game in which Madrid beat Zaragoza four-nil.

“In the players’ lounge after the game my friend and team physio Pedro Chueca walked in and told Alex and me to come with him. Alex was shocked to see Cristiano standing there and even more when he produced his shirt and signed it.”
