'Alex from Glastonbury' finally meets PSG's Thiago Silva and gets his shirt signed

‘Alex from Glasto’ became a cult sensation in Britain after his performance at Glastonbury back in June. 

The teenager, whose full name is Alex Mann, went viral after joining rapper Dave on stage to perform the song ‘Thiago Silva’ in front of a huge crowd.

He absolutely smashed, too. 

Not only did he flawlessly rap AJ Tracey’s bars, but he breezed through Dave’s part of the tune too, completely blowing away all of those watching.  

As you can probably guess, the song pays homage to Paris Saint-Germain’s captain and Alex’s performance didn’t go unnoticed by the man himself.

Within 48 hours, Silva had tweeted his appreciation and even asked social media for help to find the 15-year-old. Check out his response below. 

While Alex was shooting to fame, the Brazilian defender was preparing for a Copa America semi-final tie with Argentina, so he would have been forgiven for completely forgetting about the incident.

But now, almost two months later, the pair finally met in Paris.

Alex posted a photo on his Twitter of Silva signing the shirt he wore to Glastonbury, with the caption ‘Well that was an experience’. It has since been liked over 15,000 times. 


That’s a moment the teenager won’t ever forget – so fair play to Silva for following through with his promise. 

Meeting the PSG star at the Parc des Princes isn’t the only good thing to come out of Alex’s Glastonbury performance. 

He’s since dropped a single of his own, titled ‘What You Know About That Bro’ and his social media following has grown by hundreds of thousands.

We have no idea what’s next for ‘Alex from Glasto’ but you can be sure that we’ve not heard the last of him.
