Keylor Navas Shaves His Head In Support Of Children With Cancer
Sometimes it's easy to concentrate on all the bad things that happen in the world that we forget to champion when people do good so here's a round of applause for Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.
Navas and his Real Madrid teammates celebrated winning their first La Liga title in five years last night with a fairly routine 2-0 win over Malaga that meant Barcelona's comeback victory over Eibar meant nothing.

Los Blancos knew that they only needed a draw but a loss would hand Barca the title because of their better head-to-head record against their fierce rivals but Ronaldo's second minute goal pretty much made all other permutations moot.
However goalkeeper Keylor Navas did still have to make a good couple of saves, especially from a Sandro free-kick when Zinedine Zidane's side were only still only 1-0 up.
And Navas caught the eye for more one reason last night with the Costa Rican number one showing off a newly shaved head for the match.
A players new haircut is rarely of interest, unless it happens to be Paul Pogba and then it's a whole event featuring social media, a world premier and a special edition emoji, but Navas revealed why he had his hair shaved.
It was all in support of kids who suffer from cancer and lose their hair and you've got to give him props for that, well played Keylor!
The 30 year old posted a picture on Instagram saying, "Thank god we won!! This title is dedicated to my family and to all the children who undergo very strong treatments and their hair falls out. Many strength families, lots of faith that God never leaves us!! Hala Madrid and pure life!!"
Keylor: "I knew how to face the bad times. Next season I'll be here. I don't think I'll leave!"- RMadrid Edition (@RMadridEdition) May 21, 2017

An incredible gesture by the keeper.
Not all heroes wear capes, and some of them don't even have hair!
