Cristiano Ronaldo is due to pay an emotional visit to Beirut bombing survivor Haidar Moustafa.

The three-year-old Real Madrid fan tragically lost both parents when two suicide bombers attacked Lebanon's capital last week and will now meet his idol Ronaldo thanks, in part, to Goal.

Baraah Hassan, Goal's Lebanon correspondent and head of Madrid fan club Pena Madridista, was one of many who visited Haidar in hospital after the attack after seeing a picture of him wearing a Real Madrid kit.

Hassan contacted the Spanish giants to arrange a meeting between Ronaldo and Haidar and, in reply, was contacted personally by Madrid president Florentino Perez who set about confirming arrangements.

Fellow journalist Rana Harbi started a social media campaign with the aim of raising awareness for the story, with her #CristianoMeetHaidar quickly becoming a trending topic on Twitter before Madrid made contact.
