On a day of high emotion, impassioned messages on social media and incredible tales of people travelling home to vote from all corners of the world, it was going to take something special to really make us say 'wow'.

But this story – which has had us glued all day to the Twitter account of a chap most of us had never heard of before today – really takes the biscuit.

It starts with a dawning realisation that he was indeed eligible to vote, involved all sorts of complications and twists and turns, and ends with... well, that would spoil the story, wouldn't it?

The feelgood story to end a day of feelgood stories. Kdamo, we salute you.

It began with a plea to donate to his girlfriend's #hometovote fund...

... and continued with a sad but defiant reference to his inability to cast a ballot for himself.

But THEN!

We love you, kdamo's mammy

It was enough to make anyone emotional, and our hero was by no means impervious

AND THERE'S EVEN A ROMANTIC SURPRISE SUBPLOT!

But uh oh! We're into Act 2 now, and with that comes the complication...

... although it looked like the transport issues were sorted at least.

And the spectators began to accumulate...

... while the complications continued.

WE CAN'T LOOK!

There had to be an explanation for all this

Although the saintly orders weren't all bad....

That's it, kdamo. Come into our loving bosom!

Nearly...

[subplot]

... NEARLY!

YAAAAAY!!!

[Denouement]

We said it before, and we'll say it again: we salute you, kdamo.

Update!

Fiona made it too. OUR HEARTS.
