Fan Hall of Fame: The Portuguese boy who showed us what sportsmanship is all about

Soccer fans witnessed a major upset when Portugal beat France in the Euro 2016 final.  And speaking of upset, that doesn't even begin to describe what the French fans looked like after losing to that smaller country to the south. Rioters arrested under the Eiffel Tower. Mon Dieu!

Proving that good sportsmanship and fan fraternity are alive and well, though, a young Portuguese fan who couldn't have been more than 9 years old walked up to a crying, despondent French fan, tapped him on the hand, and patted him on the back. The French fan bawled and hugged the kid. Can't make this up. Millions of people watched in online HERE.

Give that kid admission to the Sports Fans Coalition Fan Hall of Fame.
