A group of FIFA 20 Pro Clubs players have gone viral after holding a touching tribute to their friend after his death.

The gamers, believed to be from Tunisia, held a moment of silence after kicking off their virtual game. 

All 22 players - each controlled by a different person - formed a circle around the halfway line and stood still for a minute before resuming the match. 

Their tribute was for Wael Laabidi, who has sadly passed away.

After the image was shared online earlier this week, it has since racked up thousands of likes and retweets across Twitter and Facebook.

Pro FIFA player and YouTuber ZwebackHD was one of the people to see it, and he tweeted: 

"Man [not going to lie] this was touching in a different way. The Tunisian Pro Clubs brothers lost one of their friends recently and did a moment of silence before the start of the match.

"RIP Wael Laabidi. Must have been a really great dude."

Other FIFA fans were quick to praise the gamers for their tribute. 

"Despite all the negativity the game gets out of us and how toxic people can be... it's really heartwarming to see this... may his soul rest in peace," one commented.

Rest in peace, Wael.
