Yuvraj Singh’s life is an inspiration to one and all. Widely deemed as one of the greatest limited-overs cricketers to emerge out from India, Yuvi has accomplished things that can make a great highlight reel when put together.

The southpaw has hit six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad during the inaugural ICC World Twenty20. In the same tournament, he had scored a scintillating 30-ball 70 against Australia in the semi-final to propel India into the final, where they had beaten Pakistan by 5 runs to lift the cup.

Yuvraj was adjudged Man of the Tournament in the triumphant 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. He had played in the showpiece event while suffering from an illness and vomiting blood. The illness was later diagnosed as cancer on his left lung.

Yuvi then took a break from cricket for his treatment at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston, United States and eventually made a return to competitive cricket in September 2012.

Since then Yuvraj is doing his bit for the cancer suffering patient by running a foundation called YouWeCan. Recently, he did something for his 11-year-old fan that shows how great a human being he is.

Yuvraj, who is playing for Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2018, met a young fan named Rocky, who is suffering from cancer. The left-hander also spent some quality time with Rocky.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, KXIP shared the picture of Yuvraj Singh with his little fan and captioned it as: “11-year-old Rocky, who’s suffering from cancer met with his idol @YUVSTRONG12 who spent some time with the young champ.”

As per the reports in Dainik Bhaskar, Rocky is suffering from blood cancer for 10 years. Yuvi shook his hand and talked to him. He also gifted him school bag, cap and t-shirt.

Reports further suggest that Yuvraj talked to Rocky’s father and told to him stay strong. The 36-year-old hoped that his young fan will win his battle like he did in 2011-12. Yuvi advised Rocky's father to have faith and not be sad in front of the boy.

Yuvraj’s heart-warming gesture for his little fan is certainly winning the Internet:
