If you thought Ed Sheeran couldn’t get any nicer then you were wrong as he just granted a terminally ill teenage fan her final wish.

Sophia Gall, 15, from Victoria, Australia, found out last month that her cancer had become terminal.

She was diagnosed in 2015 with the rare bone cancer osteosarcoma after doctors discovered a lump on her back.

When she learned about this news she shared on her Instagram two very special final wishes.

One of these was to meet British pop sensation Ed Sheeran.

In the post she said:

My second wish is to meet Ed Sheeran again and have a private concert with him when he is performing at Wembley Stadium in London.

Ed Sheeran has been a fan of mine for as long as I can remember, and his music has helped me so much throughout my journey.

Well Ed must’ve been paying attention as he made her dream a reality at the O2 Arena – Sophia was overwhelmed with joy.

She shared a selfie with the singer on her Instagram with the caption:

I am so overly happy right now.

This day has been amazing and I never want it to end.

Previously a keen dancer and soccer player, Sophia now wants to see as much of the world as she can.

Stay strong and keep inspiring others Sophia!
