John Cena paid a surprise visit to a seven-year-old boy who is seriously ill for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The WWE superstar went to see David Castle, who is fighting a Wilms tumour, at his home in Tampa, Florida.

The 16-time world heavyweight champion handed over two WWE Titles, a signed t-shirt, a hat and armbands to the youngster.

According to WFLA News, Pasco County Fire Rescue service helped put the surprise together with the kid’s mother, Tammy Miller.

David was diagnosed with a Wilms tumour in October 2019 and was already in stage four upon diagnosis. His family have set up a GoFundMe page, aiming to raise money for David’s medical expenses.

Cena returned to the squared circle in Wrestlemania 36 with a match against Bray Wyatt, which he lost in an empty arena.

The 43-year-old has become a household name in Hollywood and he is now hosting Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? on Nickelodeon.

He is well-known for his charity work and has granted over 650 wishes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation despite his packed schedule.

Despite the troubles faced by the 53-year-old, he has risen to make a name for himself with movie appearances and podcasts and owns a cannabis company.

Tyson is currently preparing for an exhibition fight aimed at raising money for charity and a video clip of his frightening speed and punch power went viral.
