Fulham Players Climb Into Crowd To Celebrate Goal With 13-Year Old Fan Rhys Porter

A video posted to social media shows the moment Fulham players climbed into the crowd to celebrate with fan Rhys Porter - who suffers from cerebral palsy and was recently subjected to online abuse.

The moment happened after Aleksander Mitrovic's goal, which handed the lead to the away side just after half-time.

Following the strike, a group of Fulham players went into the crowd and celebrated with young Porter, ruffling his hair and revealing in the moment.

The celebration was captured by a fan in the away end, who posted the heart-warming video to Twitter.

In a rare moment of unity between football fans, users from different fan bases came together to praise the players for giving the 13-year-old a moment he'll never forget.

Some fans were just as keen to call out his abusers as they were to praise the Fulham players.

Porter was made an honorary member of the Fulham squad last week after details of the online abuse were revealed.

Cottagers defender Tim Ream praised the youngster's resolve, telling the BBC: "People see footballers as role models and inspirations.

"For me, what he's doing is more of an inspiration than anything any of us could ever do."

While Fulham may have dropped points at Ashton Gate this weekend, Marco Silva's side are still just four points behind Championship leaders, AFC Bournemouth.
