Watch the incredible moment Fulham players celebrate with disabled teen, 13, who was trolled on social media

The football stars celebrated with Rhys Porter, 13, who was bullied on social media after posting a video on himself playing football.

A 13-year-old football fan with cerebral palsy said he felt “overjoyed” when Fulham players celebrated their goal with him at the weekend.

Brave Rhys, 13, decided to hit back by taking part in a special charity save challenge.

And on Saturday in their Championship game against Bristol, Fulham players climbed into the crowd to celebrate Aleksandar Mitrović’s 50th-minute goal with Rhys.

“I was overjoyed to be included in the goal celebration against Bristol last week, it was just amazing,” Rhys told LondonWorld.

“It felt amazing for them to all include me in training and they kept on checking up on me, which I thought was so kind of them.”

“I think Tim Ream is amazing. He is such a kind person and he’s been looking out for me all the time and I think he’s such a good captain,” he said.

After the match Ream said: “Not the result Rhys Porter asked for but another cool moment shared and experienced.

“Well done to the boys for recognising the opportunity to share the celebration.

“We go again Wednesday - your support is always appreciated.”

Rhys, from Uxbridge, has had a tough time after his online abuse.

The footage showed Rhys as a goalkeeper for Feltham Bees, a disability sports club associated with Brentford FC.

The teenager was born prematurely and has quadriplegic cerebral palsy. He later also developed epilepsy years later.

Awful trolls sent horrible messages saying: “Has someone shot you in the kneecaps?”

“He had only recently started to accept his disability and posted a TikTok video of himself saving a goal,” Rhys’ mother, Kelly Porter told LondonWorld

“At the time he posted it he only had eight or nine followers, but by the following morning he had over 100,000 and the video had been viewed and shared over 100,000 times.”

“Me and my husband were shocked to see hundreds of nasty comments underneath the video.

“People were writing hurtful comments such as: ‘You are disabled, you shouldn’t be doing sports.’”

Kelly, 41, said the comments “infuriated” her and her husband so they decided to address the issue as a family.

Rhys has responded to his trolls by taking part in the disability charity Scope’s Make it Count challenge, and made 20 saves a day during the Paralympics.

The football fan has so far raised over £19,000 for Scope.

Rhys is also working on designing his own brand #BeYou, where he is encouraging people to be themselves no matter who they are.
