‘All heroes have weaknesses’: Wasim Akram’s advice to young diabetic is the most adorable thing you will see today
Pakistani cricket hero Wasim Akram’s advice to a 10-year-old suffering from diabetes has melted thousands of hearts and is undoubtedly the most adorable thing you will see today.
Twitter user Jenny Carr shared an image of her 10-year-old son saying that she was heartbroken to hear her child say he ‘hated’ his life. She had also tagged Wasim Akram among other cricketers asking them for some ‘inspiration’ for her son Oliver, who suffers from Type 1 Diabetes.
Heartbroken to hear my 10 year old say he hates his life. Struggling with Type 1 Diabetes but an absolute hero to us. Need some inspiration @jbairstow21 @root66 @JDRFUK @teamnovonordisk @MuhammadAliBox @wasimakramlive @jginorton @PhilSoutherland pic.twitter.com/pOMurXo2g5

Akram, who himself was diagnosed with Diabetes at age 30, was quick to react and his response just won him thousands of more hearts.
“He doesn’t hate his life Jenny. He hates that he has to battle such a big challenge at such a young age. It’s a hard time for you both and its very important that you all stay strong. Your Strength will be his superpower. Tell him every hero has a weakness, don’t let diabetes be his,” Akram said in his tweet.

Others compared his comments to his Yorkers to Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara
WOW! What a response! RESPECT? This one is like your Yorker to a Sachin or Lara which was worth walking 100 miles to watch…
