She broke down in tears of happiness after the Chelsea midfielder topped off an already incredibly night by jumping into the crowd and handing over his number 10. shirt.
As he walked back to join his team-mates, footage showed Mount grinning from ear-to-ear as the young girl stared open-mouthed and was hugged tightly by her dad.
