If you ever find yourself losing faith in the game of football, here's one video you should turn to remember just how brilliant the sport can be.

After all, football is one of those few past times than can bring people from all ages, walks of life and even nationalities together.

And Dutch side Den Haag won a lot more fans with the behaviour of their supporters on Sunday.

These days, it is usually crowd trouble that steals the headlines but on this occasion, it was a brilliant act of kindness by Den Haag's travelling faithful during a match against Feyenoord which stole the show.

To those not in the know, it probably looked like one of the most bizarre protests ever seen but in fact, the toys were gifts to children who had attended the game from the Sophia Children's Hospital.

Feyenoord did suggest the gesture on Twitter prior to the match but requested that no hard objects such as beads or buttons were on any of the toys thrown to avoid any unfortunate accidents.

It is unlikely even they would have predicted such a fantastic response from their opponents' supporters and it is definitely one of the more heartwarming stories you will read today.

Unfortunately for Den Haag, it couldn't inspire an improbable victory against the top team in Holland at the moment as ex-Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt was among the scorers in a 3-1 victory for Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side
