Barcelona youngsters' sportsmanship shines through in youth match

Proving that short, sharp passing isn't the only thing they're instilling in their players at La Masia, Barcelona's youngsters did the club doubly proud after winning the World Challenge Cup in Tokyo over the weekend.

Barca's Under-13 "Infantil B" side beat Omya 1-0 in the final of the tournament -- a result that left the home team well and truly devastated.

However, after the final whistle sounded, the young Catalan team took the time to personally console their weeping opponents individually with many a hug and head pat offered in comfort.

How sweet. Maybe there is hope for mankind after all.
