Known for his trademark "virtual hugs", Adam's appearance on the Toy Show last year quickly made him a household name.

Earlier this year, US President Joe Biden sent a personal letter to the child to thank him for raising spirits during the pandemic.

It read: "Your Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, told me about the great work you have been doing, and most importantly, your virtual hugs.

"They are a wonderful symbol of hope and joy and have helped many people during these difficult times."

Mr Biden also wrote about how challenging the Covid-19 situation must be for Adam and his family and friends.

He wrote: "I want you to know that a lot of smart people from the United States, Ireland, and around the world are working hard to beat Covid-19. Your message helps give them strength, and it gives me strength."

More recently, Adam was presented with the Lord Mayor Youth Award from Hazel Chu during her last day in office.
