Cristiano Ronaldo Brings Fan Who Just Recovered from Coma to Dortmund Clash
via 101 Great Goals

The legend of good-guy Cristiano Ronaldo grows. 

A young 14-year-old Polish boy met Ronaldo, along with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, during Madrid's win over Borussia Dortmund midweek after a strange but heart-warming story came out that Ronaldo was involuntarily involved in. 

The boy, Dawid Pawlaczyk, was in a coma for three months after being hit by a car. 

According to Yahoo, the boy's parents brought Real Madrid sheets to the hospital and played Real Madrid matches in his headphones while in a coma due to his love of the Madrid club. 

Pawlaczyk awoke in November on the same day Ronaldo had scored in Portugal's World Cup qualifying play-off with Sweden. 

Polish outlet Fakt (per the same Yahoo report), contacted Ronaldo about the story, and the superstar immediately invited the boy and his family to the Dortmund match while taking care of all the costs.
