She's Valencia's Singaporean angel

It's not just Peter Lim that's been hailed at Spanish football club Valencia.

The club's Singaporean owner was watching the weekend match at the Mestalla with his family.

Kim, his 22-year-old daughter, was a big hit with the club's fans especially after she posted on Instagram her exuberance at Valencia having ended Real Madrid's 22-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory.

In a picture she took with Valencia skipper Dani Pajero and right back Antonio Barrangan (who scored the first Valencia goal), she wrote:

"WE WON OMG!!! & it's against Real Madrid OMG! It was a hard game. I am so happy. Well done all of you. You are the best. And our goalkeeper is amazing. I love every single one of you!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!!!!"

Many Spanish fans sent their love back and the comments ran the gamut of "We love you Kimmy! Valencia is your home!", "Kimmy Valencia loves you, thanks for your support!" and "Amazing, you are our angel and booster!"

Another happy camper at the match was Seungri of K-pop boy band Big Bang.

Having been invited by the Lim family, the football fan had a pleasant shock when Big Bang's hit Fantastic Baby was played in the stadium.

He wrote to Ms Lim: "Thanks for the surprise!" and also uploaded a video of it on Instagram.

It didn't matter that few fans at the Mestella recognised the song, Seungri, 24 was just over the moon at being there.

In a picture he posted of him, Mr Lim and Ms Lim, he wrote: "Thank u for inviting me!"
