Here at Le Buzz we have a real soft spot for Fernando Alonso.

Maybe it’s the beard, maybe it’s the smile, or maybe it’s just the fact that he is a terrific guy and we got yet another reminder of that during his home Grand Prix at Barcelona this weekend.

After a stellar qualifying performance from Alonso the F1 twitter account posted a GIF of a young fan celebrating his hero.

And Alonso took notice by telling the organisers to get the boy down to the grid so he can meet him.

F1 said they would work on it…

And on Sunday before the race one little lad’s dream came true when he got to meet Alonso.

That’s just lovely.
