A rap fan has been left buzzing this morning after his idol brought him up on stage at Glastonbury to perform live to thousands of screaming people.
Dave the rapper invited the young man to join him on the Other Stage on Sunday to rap the lyrics to his and AJ Tracey's track Thiago Silva – named in honour of the Brazilian football player.
And the fan has been unveiled as Alex Mann from Wells in Somerset, who couldn't believe his luck when Dave called into the crowd for someone to join him on stage.
"I got this track called Thiago Silva but you guys are too far away for me to even be able to see you. Who is sober enough to sing these lyrics along with me?" the rapper asked his fans.
Alex, who was sitting on the shoulders of a mate, clutched his Paris Saint-Germain logo shirt as his pals pointed at him, trying to get Dave's attention.
"I see a PSG shirt over there, but do you know the lyrics?" Dave asked.
Alex started rapping comprehensively enough that the rapper decided to take a chance on him.
"He looks like he knows the lyrics. Yeah, let's take a chance, he's wearing a Thiago Silva shirt. Let's get him up there," the rap star said to roaring approval.
Alex was helped over the barricade by festival staff and clambered up on stage, looking like he couldn't believe his luck.
To everyone's shock, Alex proved himself more than adept at entertaining a massive crowd as he launched into the lyrics with his new famous mate.
The crowd went wild as Alex rapped the rest of the track, before Dave walked over to him and embraced him.
Alex took to Twitter this morning after his incredible experience to thank Dave.
"Fully sent it Santandave1 ajtracey thiagosilva Glastobury2019 Glastonbury So glad I didn't f**k it," he wrote.
Even actual Thiago Silva got in touch on Twitter after seeing a video of Alex's performance.
He tweeted, "Thanks Alex! PSG_inside Santandave1 ajtracey ", later adding: "Help Me Find Alex!"
Rapper Dave properly fanboyed, retweeting it with the message: "OH MY GOD."
He then tagged Alex in a tweet and told the footballer, "That's him."
Dave later joked his biggest dream had also come true, telling his followers: "Thiago Silva has recognised Thiago Silva and now I have decided to retire. My work here is done."
