After both Japan and Senegal won at the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday, you would expect their fans to flock to the streets in celebration.

Some Japanese and Senegalese spectators, however, decided to stay behind to help clean up the mess within the stadium.

Photos and videos showing fans searching the stands for rubbish and gathering it up went viral on social media.

“Senegal achieved a historic triumph,” Argentinian TV channel TyC Sports tweeted. “But their fans instead of celebrating minutes after the game are responsible for cleaning their sector before leaving #Respect.”

Fans were praised for their efforts by several people on Twitter.

“This shouldn’t be ignored,” one user tweeted. “I know for a fact I wouldn’t stay to clean up. Fair play bit of class shown here.”

Senegal’s victory came the day’s second Group H’s game, following Japan’s historic 2-1 win over Colombia.
