Here is Newcastle fan Jack Waddle meeting the boss Rafa Benitez at the entrance to the Benton Training ground and he gives Rafa a couple of pats on the cheek.
The video has gone viral.
A classic Rafa tap on the face…
But this time it was for Rafa! ??

Jack’s Mom Shelly posted the video online and she says her son has autism and it’s the way he greets everybody he loves.
And that, of course, includes Rafa who has done a tremendous job for Newcastle in nearly three years as the manager.
And here’s news from the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas that Jack has been invited to the training at Benton next week.
And now Jack’s been invited to meet Rafa at the #nufc training ground next week!
Well done to everyone involved: made Jack and his family’s day. Football really can be great at times. https://t.co/m0MgHdmmLa
