Illuminada “Nelly” Magtoto had one wish for her 90th birthday - to play one-on-one with her favourite basketball player, Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade.
Nelly lives in Miami and is a devoted fan of the city’s basketball team, so for her birthday her grandson recorded her sinking a basket in her backyard and asking for a game with her beloved Dwyane Wade.
Her grandson posted the video on YouTube, where Wade saw it and agreed to the game.
The Miami Heat recorded the adorable meeting between the two.
Nelly was thrilled to be on a court with her hero, telling him: "I always pray for you."
Wade was an absolute gentleman, helping her sink a basket and rewarding her with a huge hug when she scored.
Both ended up with tears of joy in their eyes after the meeting and Wade also posted a message on Instagram about what it meant to him to meet this particular fan.
