Ben Williams, 5, finished six weeks of radiation when staff at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham presented him with the trophy. The mini-awards ceremony was hosted by Ben's family and doctors and nurses of the radiology department who were wrapped in British flags.
"Ben has just completed his #radiotherapy for a #braintumour, he was unable to walk and talk before his treatment but a week ago he asked for the World Cup, so we delivered," tweeted Liam Herbert, one of the hospital's pediatric radiographers.
