Fans take boy to 'watch' his favourite team... even though he's dead and in a coffin

A young soccer fanatic was gunned down on the eve of a big match as he played football in a park.

But his friends decided not to let a simple thing like murder get in the way of his plans and took him to 'watch' his favourite team anyway.

They collected the coffin containing the body of 17-year-old Christopher Jacome from the funeral home and marched it into the General Santander stadium in Cucuta, Colombia, to join the 42,000-strong crowd ahead of their match with Envigado.

That's wacky and macabre, yet it's also really touching.
