World Cup filled with compassion

Even if you don't follow sports, the World Cup often brings wonderful stories of international peace and compassion. This year's tournament in the Russian city of Sochi was no exception. For starters, Japanese fans made headlines for continuing their practice of picking up trash and cleaning up stadiums after their games. Next, a pictures posted on the World Cup Twitter page shows Colombian and Mexican fans hoisting up an Egyptian man in a wheelchair so he can watch his team play.

The Senegalese fanbase cleaned up the stadium after they team's historic win against Poland. And finally, the Mexican fanbase were photographed handing out sombreros to disabled Russians. According to GNN Russian correspondent Timofey Yakovets, the Mexican sombreros were really given to any Russian who shared Mexico's love of the World Cup.
