The legend of Italian club Roma Francesco Totti answered the invitation of the family of the young player Ilenia Mattelli, and visited their daughter, who a few days earlier had woken up to Totti’s voice, months after she had fallen into a coma.
And the official FIFA account on Twitter posted pictures of the Italian star’s visit to the 19-year-old Lazio while in hospital, and he spoke with her after she woke up from a coma that lasted for more than 9 months due to a car accident in which her friend died.

Although the young woman, Ilenia, plays for Roma, traditional rivals Lazio, she is a fan of the Wolves Club and her favorite star is Totti.
The Italian star had sent Illenia a video message to support her while she was in her coma, saying, “Ilenia, do not give up, you will be cured, and we are all with you and by your side.”
The girl woke up after hearing Totti’s message, and the Italian press described the incident as a miracle.
