During Germany’s blow out win over Brazil in the 2014 World Cup, the television cameras caught an elderly Brazil fan clutching to a World Cup replica trophy. His eyes were watering and it was a sad sight to see.

There is a happen ending to that story though. He gives the trophy to a Germany fan and tells them to take it to the final according to a Reddit user.
This sad Brazilian fan was shown crying. But no ones published this beautiful picture of him handing the trophy to a German fan. He was quoted as saying “Take it to the final! As you can see, it is not easy, but you deserve it, congratulations”
What a kind and benevolent gesture that capitalizes what sports is all about. There are often moments like this that go unnoticed between fans, but this is truly a special moment.
