Pure class.

Japan’s incredible run at the World Cup ended Tuesday after they were eliminated by Belgium in the Round of 16. The team was naturally heartbroken, but that didn’t stop them from doing what they thought was right.

This is Japan’s locker room after the game. It’s completely spotless, and they even left a thank you note written in Russian. All this after being in tears on the field following a crushing defeat. You could totally forgive Japan for just wanting to get out of there and move on, but they didn’t want to do that.

Pure class. Of course, what would you expect after their fans helped clean the stands?
