This little girl had the cutest reaction to seeing the announcement of Alexis Sanchez signing with Manchester United.

The footage, captured in Belfast, shows 2-year-old Meabh excitedly moving her hands as she watches the announcement on an iPad.

Meabh was born at 23 weeks and weighed only 1lb (450g), making her the youngest gestation baby born in Northern Ireland.

"She was given a 0-1% chance of survival but she defied the odds to not only survive but exceed doctors expectations of her." wrote the filmer, Maired Digney, Meabh's uncle.

The little girl can now walk, speak and even sing the "Glory Glory" Manchester Utd chant. Dressed in red and white since she was born, Meabh often watches games with her uncle and can easily recognise the club badge.

"She's still on oxygen at times due to chronic lung and has her wee feeding tube in but apart from that, she's a wee miracle and joy to be around. She's such a happy wee thing," concluded the uncle.
