Here’s Steven Gerrard making an Indonesian girl cry

As a living Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard must know what it is like to be revered, but the reaction to him on the club's tour of the Far East might have been a new one even for him.

More Beatle than dynamic central midfielder, Gerrard was walking through a crowd of people in Jakarta when one fan broke down in tears at being close to the player.

Having shouted 'Gerrard, I love you', the England captain managed a polite smile - enough for the joyous waterworks to start.

Liverpool went on to win their match against an Indonesia XI 2-0, with Gerrard starting for the Reds as he looks to return to full fitness from a shoulder injury.

Liverpool now move on to Australia as their tour continues, and on this evidence the women of Indonesia may never fully recover.
