Brazilian Soccer Player David Luiz Brings Fan To Tears (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Give it up for World Cup player David Luiz.

During a recent training session, a young boy evaded security and ran onto the field toward the Brazilian defender. Seeing the fan make a beeline for him, Luiz decided to hop the barrier and embrace the young fan who was in tears.

As if the moment couldn't get any sweeter, Luiz then took the shirt off his back and gave the training jersey to the fan -- but not before signing it.

It's not the first time Luiz has welcomed a young pitch invader. Earlier this month, an 8-year-old boy tried to run onto the field during another of Brazil's training sessions but was caught by security. While he was being escorted from the premises, Brazilian forward Neymar intervened and invited the young fan over to meet the team and pose for pictures with Luiz and the other players.
