This is the incredible moment school friends helped a boy with cerebral palsy win the sports day race.

The MEN reports that Daniel Boyers told his mum he did not want to participate in the school race at St Oswalds Catholic Primary School, in Ashton-in-Makerfield.

The 10-year-old has cerebral palsy and mum Wendy Boyers thought he felt uncomfortable because of a plaster cast on his ankle after recent surgery.

But he was actually worried that his school friends would laugh at his running. However, his classmates talked him into taking part and then decided to slow down to allow Daniel to overtake them and win the gold medal.

Daniel rushed over to his mum crying and shouting ‘I am so happy I have come first. I have never done it before’.

“The children that ran the race are absolutely brilliant, all of the children in the class, everyone, are supportive of him and make sure he is always included.”

Wendy has since shared the video on her Facebook page saying that “this is inclusion, but the kind that you can’t teach, this comes from the heart.”
