Sergio meets Ramos, the newborn son of a murdered Israeli policeman

As captain of both Real Madrid and the Spanish national team, Sergio Ramos is accustomed to signing autographs and taking pictures with fans around the world.

But a photograph taken recently in Jerusalem before he returned to Madrid is a special and unusual one because it was to mark his meeting with a baby named Ramos, which wasn't a coincidence.

Little Ramos is the son of Israeli policeman Haiel Sitawi (30) who, along with his colleague Kamil Shnaaan (22) was killed in the line of duty in an armed attack at the entrances of a Jerusalem mosque on Friday, July 14.

Sitawi was a massive fan of Real Madrid and his favourite player was their popular centre-back, and his passion for Ramos was such that he decided to name his first child after the player.

Sadly, just three weeks after the birth of Ramos, Sitawi was killed by three Arabs of Israeli nationality.

"Haiel had two dreams: to go to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu to see his Madrid in action and to meet, along with his baby, Sergio Ramos," explained his brother Housam.

"He managed to fulfil his first dream in May but unfortunately, he didn't get to do the second. After his murder and the attempts to recover from it, we were determined to have baby Ramos meet Sergio Ramos."

His family made every possible effort to attempt to realise Haiel's dream and the last qualification game between Israel and Spain for the World Cup provided the golden opportunity.

However, the fact that La Roja had already secured their ticket to Russia prior to the final game, there was concern that Julen Lopetegui would not take the defender on the journey south.

They weren't disappointed though as Ramos came and met with little Ramos and his family, who travelled to Jerusalem from their small town in northern Israel.

"As soon as we saw him, we burst into tears. At that moment, everything came out, memories of my brother, his murder, his dream of meeting Ramos," Housam added.

The player didn't hide his emotion either and gave them a signed Spain kit from Monday night's game, which Spain won 1-0.

"My son, who was a victim of a terrorist attack, admired Real Madrid and Ramos," said Afif Sitawe. "When I saw him, I felt like he came to see my son."

From a distance, the family will continue to support Ramos and Real Madrid, as a thank you for the gesture he showed in visiting them.
