Sports fans are known for being enthusiastic, and 7-year-old Ayo Dosumu in South Africa is no different.

After an exciting soccer game between Brazil and South Africa, this adorable little boy couldn’t contain his excitement – as soon as he could, he made his way onto the field so he could meet the players. When security noticed, however, two men started to escort him off the field, threatening to ruin his plans.

Luckily for Ayo, Brazilian star Neymar noticed and was happy to intervene. As soon as he scooped little Ayo into his arms, he couldn’t stop smiling. The rest of the team greeted him with high fives and, to celebrate, gathered together to bounce him in the air. To top it all off, the 7-year-old got a photo with Neymar, something he’ll no doubt treasure for the rest of his life!

Watch Ayo have the best day ever below, and don’t forget to share.
