London, Dec 7 (IANS) Pop star Justin Bieber made the dream of a young British fan with the rapid ageing condition progeria come true by meeting her during his stay in London.

Hayley Okines was able to meet her pop idol, owing to the efforts of a group of Bieber fans who launched a campaign on micro-blogging website to bring them together.

“You did a good thing and you were right that she has a great smile. It was actually funny, she had no clue and when she saw me she screamed,” quoted Bieber as saying.

The singer signed autographs and posed for photographs with Okines and her family. He also offered tickets to his next concert in Britain to Okines and the group responsible for bringing them together.

“She was real sweet and I offered her tickets for the show in the UK when I’m back. I think you should go with her then too. The fans did a good thing, glad I could help. Thanks for introducing us, she is a sweet girl,” Bieber added.
