Bradley Lowery has captured the hearts of football fans with his brave battle against Neuroblastoma, a rare form of the disease, and Sunderland stars have rewarded him with a special visit.

The five-year-old cuddled up to hero and Black Cats striker Jermain Defoe , who has made a special fuss of the youngster in recent months.

Bradley was the club's mascot against Chelsea before Christmas and his case has sparked a widespread fund raising campaign by fans.

Captain John O'Shea, Sebastian Larsson and Vito Mannone also attended to cheer the youngster up, with an official post on his Facebook page expressing the family's gratitude towards Sunderland.
