The 22-year-old is undergoing chemotherapy having been diagnosed with cancer and his colleagues surprised him with a lovely show of support

The heart-warming moment Athletic Club players surprised team-mate and cancer sufferer Yeray Alvarez with a touching show of solidarity was filmed, and it's guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Athletic stars shave heads for Yeray

Yeray was first diagnosed with testicular cancer last December and had an operation to remove a tumour, returning to first-team action in February.

However, examinations last month revealed the disease had returned and the 22-year-old swiftly began chemotherapy.

And therefore his team-mates have since decided to show their support by agreeing to shave their heads in an incredibly heartwarming gesture.
