If you've ever hankered for a hug from Wayne Rooney, then we have some good news for you.
The Everton forward is selling off cuddles at £500 per squeeze in order to raise money for charity.
Those of you with intimacy or personal space issues, rest assured that optional selfies and handshakes are also on offer -- at a price.
Indeed, the Rooney hug experience will cost a lofty £1,000 for two people.
The event is being organised by the A1 Sporting Speakers agency and will take place in September.
