It’s always nice to see professional athletes showing their appreciation for the people whose lives they touch through sports.
In a video that’s been viewed more than 8 million times, Brazilian soccer star Neymar Jr. reminds one young fan that he’s thinking of him, even in the middle of a game!
The little boy is battling cancer, but he is clearly over the moon when he gets to meet a legend like Neymar. He asks his hero, “If you score a goal, can you do this dance?” He then does an energetic little jig with distinctive arm movements. Neymar immediately agrees and seals the deal with a fist bump.
Not long after, Neymar scores his first goal and celebrates in the sweetest way we’ve ever seen! Not only does he do the boy’s special dance, but he also recruits some of his teammates!
What a special moment for this child! Check it out in the video below, and be sure to share this story to thank Neymar for remembering his promise.
