The family of the five-year-old, who has captured the hearts of the nation with his courageous fight against terminal neuroblastoma, was stunned when they got a call on Friday, asking them to go along.

The BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards is televised live from the Genting Arena in Birmingham tonight and the Blackhall boy will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with all his sporting heroes.

Bradley has become an inspiration for thousands of people including football players from teams across the country, including Watford FC, who took on the Black Cats yesterday, and who tweeted a video message to Bradley, voting for him to be awarded goal of the month following his appearance at The Stadium of Light.
