Avid Real Madrid fan Cillian Byrne drew a picture of Ramos in the style of a FIFA playing card in which he gave the centre back a high rating of 102.

The Spaniard is the Drimnagh lad's favourite player, with his mam Iseult saying she couldn't wait for him to come home so she could show him the message.

Iseult tweeted the photo of him holding up his picture.

She said: "My son Cillian from Dublin, Ireland worked really hard to make this drawing of you.

"He is a Real Madrid fan and a fan of yours.

"You are his favourite player and the best defender in the world. He wanted you to see it & hopes you like it (he is training to be a goalkeeper)."

Her tweet didn't go unnoticed as the World Cup Winner saw the photo and expressed his gratitude to Cillian for his generous rating system.

Ramos tweeted: "Thank you very much for your drawing and your support, Cillian.

"Never had a 102 rating before... Keep it up!!"

Iseult reacted to the unlikely response saying she couldn't wait for her son to come home so she could tell him the news.

Replying to Ramos she wrote: "I am so excited to show your tweet to Cillian when he comes out of school!

"Thanks @SergioRamos - he will be jumping around the house with excitement ❤️"

People replied to Iseult urging her to record Cillian's reaction when he finds out.

Fingers crossed she does.
