Iron Man 'Inspired' By Great Ormond St Kids

A young Iron Man fan was "over the moon" after the films' star, Robert Downey Junior, visited Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The Hollywood actor spent Monday afternoon meeting young patients and their families on the cancer ward, handing out Captain America merchandise. 

Seven-year-old Ethan Miller, who suffers from the rare blood disease ITP, as well as type 1 diabetes, posed for a photo with the star in the hospital chapel, wearing his Iron Man costume.

His father Lee said: "Ethan has been in and out of hospital a lot in the past three years.

"He watches the films all the time and virtually lives in his Iron Man costume.

"Ethan was over the moon to meet his hero and it has really helped to lift his spirits."

Downey is in London for the European premiere of Captain America: Civil War. 

He has played Tony Stark - otherwise known as Iron Man - since 2008.

The visit was organised by Disney, which has worked with the hospital's charity since 2008, raising more than £10m. 

Downey said: "The highlight of the Captain America: Civil War tour has been visiting the patients, families and staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

"Their courage, strength and hope leaves me humbly inspired."
