- Cesar Azpilicueta has invited five-year-old Tony Hudgell Chelsea training
- The boy lost his legs when he was just 41-days-old due to health complications
- Tony has however raised £145,000 for the NHS and has vowed to walk 10km every day of this month
Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta seems to have made an impact in the life of Tony Hudgell after handing him an invitation to Chelsea training after the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.
The five-year-old amputee had both legs surgically removed when he was just 41 days old following the suffering terrible abuse encounter he suffered in the hands of his biological parents.
He has now been adopted by a new couple, Paula and Mark, and they all made an appearance on the BBC Breakfast show on Monday as reported by Daily Mail.
The publication further reveals that the boy has been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 after raising over £145,000 for the NHS.
He was said to have been motivated by captain Tom Moore, former British army who raised £23 million for the fight against the deadly virus to mark his 100th birthday.
Daily Mail reports that Hudgell plans to complete a total of 10km walk every day in June to raise money for Evelina London Children's Hospital - which saved his life when he was only five weeks old.
To celebrate this youngster, the Blues skipper Azpilicueta has given the cham a huge surprise after sending in a heart-warming message to BBC Breakfast.
"Hi Tony, it's Azpi here. Everyone at Chelsea is very proud of you and what you are doing.
"You are an inspiration to us all. When things return to normality, I would like you to come to the training ground to meet all the players. Take care, I hope to see you very soon."
Daily Mail further revealed that Tony was taken to the hospital in November 2014 with multiple health complications. He was placed on life support at the Evelina London Children's Hospital.
When he was discharged from hospital at four months old, he was put into the foster care of Paula, 52, and Mark, 55, who later adopted him.

The former Super Eagles winger joined the Nerazzurri from Premier League side Chelsea on a six months deal with the hope of making his stay permanent.
However, they were unable to meet the demands of the Blues following the failure of the two parties to reach a consensus.
