Robin van Persie gave away his World Cup bronze medal to a Dutch fan in a generous gesture yesterday morning (Singapore time).

After Holland beat Brazil 3-0 to claim their third-place medal in Brasilia, RVP went over to the stands where he passed his medal to Winifried Witjes (above) - who claims to be the biggest Dutch supporter in the world.

Witjes, who has attracted attention with his orange military outfit complete with a large hat and Holland flag bow-tie, follows his team from international tournaments to friendly matches.

He estimates that, since 1988, he has attended 80 per cent of Holland's games. - Wire Services.
