Totti dedicates victory to boy killed in storm

I saw a heartfelt story from Rome the other day, that came after AS Roma's 3-1 win over Chelsea in Champions League action.

Following the contest, Francesco Totti dedicated the victory to a boy called Niccolo, who was tragically killed just hours prior to the Chelsea match, after a tree that uprooted made contact with him during a severe storm in Rome.

Niccolo, just 13 years old, was a big Roma fan and the team learned of his untimely death after the match.

Superstar athletes are either criticized or seen as heroes, so it's nice to see the human side every now and then.
