Sad elderly Brazil fan gives World Cup trophy to German fan

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.
