Adam Johnson’s sister has said she has finally taken her six-year-old son to visit his uncle for the first time since he was jailed, in what she described as an ’emotional’ reunion.

Faye Johnson, who has stood by the shamed footballer’s side, took to social media on Sunday to reveal their emotional meeting at HMP Moorland in Doncaster.

In a picture posted on Twitter, she’s holding son Lucas’ hand as they leave the jail along with mum Sonia Johnson.

She wrote alongside it: “After a long 16 month Lucas finally got to visited his uncle, so emotional seeing both faces but my little boy can’t stop smiling now (sic).”

The visit comes months after Faye said she wasn’t prepared to give up on her fight to free the convicted paedophile.

“Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do,” she wrote on Instagram.

“But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.”

The former Sunderland and England star is serving six years for grooming and sexual activity with a 15-year-old schoolgirl.

At the time of his trial – facing accusations of grooming, kissing and touching his victim – Johnson told the jury he was “ashamed” of what he had done.

Moreover he said he felt “shame and remorse” over the way he had behaved – saying he “wholeheartedly apologised for the stupidity” of his actions.

Johnson admitted grooming the girl and one charge of sexual activity with a child, relating to kissing her.

He denied there was any further sexual activity with the girl in his Range Rover when he met up with her in County Durham.

He was cleared of one charge relating to another sexual act.

Johnson told the court: “She was blameless and could not have consented. It was all my fault.

“She was a child and should have been safe in my company. My behaviour was wholly unacceptable.”
