When Japan fans were pictured cleaning up rubbish in the stadium after their World Cup clash with Ivory Coast, they won plenty of applause from the football world. The Samurai army, as they are known, took their own bags and brushes to the Arena Das Dunas and used them to cheer the team on, before getting to work after the full-time whistle.
They collected bottles, food wrappers and other rubbish long after thousands of other fans had left following the rather boring 0-0 draw. The supporters then neatly left the bags piled up around the back of the stands, so officials could easily dispose of them next time the bins are collected.
These heart-warming snaps show the fans hard at working making things nice for the next match, restoring some of the pride back into the beautiful game.
