Freddie is running 62 miles in 50 days to raise cash for the ­hospital where his pal is being treated.

Freddie, of Whalley, Lancs, said: “I was shocked.

“I thought he was just coming to say ‘Hi’ and then he went to his car and returned with a PS5 for both of us.

“It is doesn’t seem real. He wished me good luck, to keep going and said what I was doing was really good.”

‘UNREAL’

Tarkowski wrote on the PS5 box: “To Freddie, What an amazing friend you are!”

And to Hughie, he put: “Keep strong mate, you’ve got this!!!”

Burnley fan Hughie faces three years of treatment at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Mum Sarah Ronnan, 32, said: “It was unreal of James Tarkowski. It was such a nice thing to do.

“He also gave them some money to buy extra games, which was so nice of him.

“He called round on his way to training.

“We met him outside at a social distance and it was incredible for both boys.”
