A Doncaster lad trekked to Manchester and waited in line for hours to meet his hero Olympic gymnast Louis Smith...and he didn’t disapoint. Ten-year-old Cameron Beard made the trip to the Trafford Centre to tell his idol about a piece of work he had done about the gymnast that had earned him a prize of watching a football match at Old Trafford.

The Olympian who was at the shopping centre signing copies of his new book also took time to pose for a picture with Cameron, a keen gymnast himself.
