Daniel Sturridge made an Indian fan an overnight star on the social networking sites by posting a photo of his tattooed arm on his Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Rijul Sharda, a 20-year-old die-hard Liverpool supporter from New Delhi, turned up to the Reds training session in Boston in a bid to meet his football heroes.
Sturridge, who was giving autographs to fans, noticed Rijul and made it a dream-come-true meeting for the Delhiite by signing his forearm which has a Liverpool FC crest tattoo.
The image posted by the English international soon went viral on the social networking sites and the Reds also posted the video of the meeting on their YouTube channel.
"It was the best day of my life," Rijul Sharda told to LFCtour.com. "I went to Boston airport to meet the players but I didn't get to see them.
"Then I headed to the team hotel but I couldn't get in so to end up meeting Daniel and him actually taking a picture of ME - and posting it on his social media accounts - that was unbelievable!
"The feeling was incredible. It felt so good when I saw he'd posted it! My arm is famous now! I keep saying it but it was the best day of my life. I still cannot believe it wasn't a dream! I just love Liverpool Football Club!"
The Liverpool striker posted the photo on his Instagram account with a caption: "Worldwide our fans are die hard. Lfc is In his blood literally... #lfc #ynwa.. As you can see I pledged my allegiance.."
He posted the same picture on Twitter but this time with a different caption: "Apparently it was a 'light' session today..Signed a fans arm from Boston . He said LFC's in his blood."

Rijul also witnessed the training session of Liverpool at the famous Fenway Park and cheered for his favourite club on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Boston Globe.
"Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool, we're on our way to glory! Build the team like Shankly did and kids will have a story!" Sharda roared. "If you start it, you have to finish it. You can't stop in the middle."
