The Essex schoolboy who grabbed a hug with gold winning tennis player Andy Murray described the moment as 'cool'.
Henry Caplan, 11, of Blackmore, was photographed hugging the tennis star just moments after Murray defeated Roger Federer in the Olympic tennis final at Wimbledon.
The youngster slipped away from his dad, dodged by Federe's stunned relatives to grab a hug with the British Olympic Champion.
Henry told BBC Essex:
– Henry Caplan
As soon as Andy Murray won I was crying with joy and hugging my dad. I told my dad to get off and the next minute I was gone. I was down by the royal bit in front of Federer's mum and dad.
Then I hugged Andy Murray. I just thought I had to be there. It was cool.
Asked what Murray said to him, Henry said: "Anything for my fans."
Henry was at the final with father Elliot, 41, and brothers Alex, nine, and Jeremy, 19.
