David Beckham sends message to terminally ill fan

David Beckham has sent a heartfelt video message a 19-year-old terminally ill fan.

Cystic Fibrosis sufferer Chloe Hopkins wrote on her bucket list that she would love to meet the former Manchester United star and the team's current players after she was given just two years to live.

In the clip, the 40-year-old hunk says: "I heard from my friend Chris that you're not very well so I just want to send all of my best wishes and all of my love.

"I hope you get out of hospital soon and I hope you feel better soon. Lots of love. Bye bye."

Chloe - who has been on the waiting list for a double lung transplant since 2015 - says her "life would feel complete" if she got to meet all of the Manchester United squad.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, she said: "It still scares me to think about how limited my life is, but it is something I have had to come to terms with.

"Even if I have the transplant, it won't save my life. It will only prolong it. But I am determined to live whilst I'm still alive, not just sit around waiting for a call that may never come, which is why I have created a bucket list.

"Above all, I'd love to meet the United players. It's one of the best things that could ever happen to me. I never miss watching a game and I'd love a season ticket, but because of the endless flights of stairs, I can no longer attend the matches. My life would feel complete if I met them."

Chloe was diagnosed with CF when she was just 10 days old after her bowels burst.

She is now campaigning for England to adopt an 'opt-out' donor register system as they do in Wales.

The teenager outlined her ambitions on her Go Fund Me page which included meeting reality TV star Charlotte Crosby.

She fulfilled that wish recently when the 'Geordie Shore' star visited her in hospital.
