One Irish child's dream came true over the Christmas break.

Nine-year-old PJ from Kildare - who is living with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare type of cancer - got the chance to meet his hero Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson thanks to Make-A-Wish Ireland.

During filming on his new movie Hobbs and Shaw, the Hollywood star spent some time with PJ and two other children, Cameron and Lucy.

Jason Statham also made an appearance during the emotional video.

PJ's mum Tanya said her son has never been happier thanks to “a chance of a lifetime”.

While, WWE legend Johnson said granting the wishes as “undoubtedly the best part of his fame".

Make A Wish Ireland posted the video on Twitter, writing: "PJ (9) from Kildare is living with Ewing's sarcoma and recently had his wish to meet Dwayne Johnson granted! Check out the video below to see PJ meet his idol. Many thanks to The Rock for granting PJ’s wish!!
