Marc Marquez Surprise a 5 year old boy named Valentino ahead of MotoGP San Marino 2021 at the Misano Circuit.
Valentino is a Marquez fan from Italy. Valentino’s mother sent an e-mail to Marquez’s official fan club, asking them to make his son meet the Repsol Honda racer.
“Yesterday the fan club received an email from a little fan of Marc Marquez, wishing he could meet his hero at 19:30 off the track. When Marquez heard about it, he was there at 19:30 to surprise little Valentino,” wrote Repsol. Honda via Instagram.
“The two of them had an exciting conversation, talking about injuries, rain, taking selfies and also signing knee protectors,” continued Repsol Honda.
In the video shown by MotoGP, Valentino looks surprised when he finds out Marquez has come to meet him. Wearing a red Marquez fan club shirt, Valentino was mostly silent because he was amazed to see the Spaniard.
“How are you? Who wrote the email? Is it your mother,” Marquez asked Valentino.
Valentino was accompanied by his mother, who is a fan of Valentino Rossi. Marquez then showed Valentino the wounds on his hands.
Marquez’s meeting with Valentino was closed by taking a group photo. But Marquez’s surprise for Valentino is not over. The eight-time Grand Prix world champion has again approached Valentino to give the 5-year-old the two knee protectors he used in the 2021 San Marino MotoGP qualifying round.
