David hit the headlines in 2014 when he was roused from a coma after listening to a replay of Ronaldo scoring a goal.
The youngster, who had been knocked off his bike by a car in August 2013, awoke after a specialist suggested playing a recording of the moment when he netted his third goal for Portugal in a World Cup play-off against Sweden
He was then invited by the forward to a Champions League game at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2014, where he watched the match from a VIP box.
