British Formula 1 racing driver, Lewis Hamilton, returned to the UK for the first time since he won the World Championship this morning, and was met at Heathrow Airport by a crowd of over 50 shouting, screaming, applauding 6-year-olds.
Hamilton, who finished fifth in Brazil on Sunday to secure the win, looked mildly embarrassed at the size of the crowd, and slightly more embarrassed at the age of it.
He giggled nervously, as he said:
"Who are all these kids?"
It took McClaren boss, Ron Dennis, to clear that one up. He told the champion:
"These are your fans. Well, the older ones, anyhow."
Hamilton, himself, started driving karts when he was just 11, having been a keen Scalextric player since he was 3, and many of the kids there to meet him today, will also be harbouring dreams of becoming World Champion in 10 or 15 years, although many of them will be on the dole by then.
Timmy Tomkins, 7, President of the Lewis Hamilton for Prime Minister Club, a branch of the official Lewis Hamilton Fan Club, said:
"Hurrah, for Lewis, the champion!"
Hamilton told his fans:
"Thanks for coming. It feels great. Now come, on, back to school!"
