Amazing how sport is a massive part of peoples lives, bringing people together so much at times.


A terminally ill Feyenoord fan was given the greatest surprise of his life when he turned up to watch his side being put through their paces ahead of the new season.

Fans of the Dutch side traditionally turn up in numbers to watch the club's first pre-season training session, but this time there was a difference.

Lifelong fan Rooie Marck was told he had terminal cancer and had days to live, and his dying wish was to see Feyenoord again.

His friends brought him to the training session in his bed, but little did he know that the huge crowd would be chanting his name, lighting flares and unleashing a huge banner of him.

In floods of tears, Rooie met his heroes before being helped to meet the crowd, who were singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone.'
Tragically, Rooie died just three days after this footage was taken at Feyenoord's first pre-season training session a couple of weeks ago.

But the club and its fans certainly left him with a special memory.

A lasting memory for all his family. He probably died fairly happy.

Couldn't watch the video as even reading the story made me cry. So very sad, but how wonderful for his family to know he had his dying wish fulfilled in such a fantastic way. Well done Feyenoord and all involved.
