An Airdrie schoolboy has written a book about his alter ego Captain Chaos to raise money for a local hospital.
He has racked up almost £3000 for Monklands Hospital staff by penning a story about his dream of becoming a World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar – catching the eye of two of the industry’s biggest names in the process.
Eight-year-old Caelan McFaulds – or Captain Chaos as he is known – wrote the 38-page novel, ‘The Main Event of WrestleMania’, to thank the staff who cared for him when he was in hospital with a leg injury.

Caelan said: “The book is about me becoming a WWE wrestler and becoming the WWE Champion.
“So I have built my way up to the Royal Rumble and I win the Royal Rumble to go the main event at WrestleMania.
“I beat Drew McIntyre for the WWE Champion and by the way Drew is my hero.”
He added: “I couldn’t deal with coronavirus. I didn’t like it!
