He's caused a stir in the stands at everything from NHL games to the Olympics and even convinced tennis star Novak Djokovic to bust a move with him - now 'superfan' Cameron Hughes has been turning heads at an ice hockey game in Belfast.

As a professional superfan, Cameron has spent the last 18 years travelling the world and bringing his own unique brand of positivity to crowds at sporting fixtures.

And that means huge amount of energy, infectious enthusiasm and, most of all, crazy dancing.

"When you see a kid getting up dancing, that's what it's all about," Cameron told UTV, after enjoying the weekend's action at the Odyssey Arena - home of the Belfast Giants.

"It's about empowering other people to go: 'Hey, I'm at a hockey game - get up, have fun, let loose!'

"And I know that the Giants ... that's what it's all about - the community, the family and bringing people together."

Belfast, you are tops! Cheers and keep supporting your Giants on to victory! Hope to be back soon!!!

And even his exploits and having made the long journey home, the Canadian was still excited by his experience in Northern Ireland.

"WOW! I can barely talk or move, but worth every second!!!" he declared on Facebook and Twitter.

"Thanks @belfastgiants fans and community for one of the most memorable and fun weekends of my career.

"I'm a lucky guy to be able to meet so many great people and to hit so many amazing places."
