At the weekend Defoe carried Bradley onto the pitch as mascot for Sunderland’s last home game and on Thursday he was on the red carpet with him as he was named child of courage at the Pride of North East Awards.

Bradley, who has the rare childhood cancer neuroblastoma, has touched millions of people as well as the world of football.

On Wednesday, his family posted a video of Bradley in hospital in which he smiled and put his thumbs up, saying: “Thank you for my birthday messages everyone.”

In April, it was confirmed the latest and final round of Bradley’s treatment had failed and the family vowed to continue “creating memories”.

His mother, Gemma Lowery, said: “I’m absolutely over the moon that we have managed to get this far and celebrate Bradley’s sixth birthday with all of our family and friends.

“He is actually a lot better than he has been, he’s still obviously poorly and in a lot of pain but he has rested well in bed all day and he was raring to go tonight.

“We are very grateful for Jermain to have taken Bradley in his heart. He is obviously now a friend of the family rather than Bradley’s idol – although he is still Bradley’s idol.

“He makes Bradley happy and he makes Bradley smile, and it’s just lovely to see him with him.”
