As he demonstrates every time he pulls on the shirt of the national team, Luis Suarez is a proud Uruguayan.

So when the Barcelona star spotted a young fan from his home country - with the flag to prove it - after his side's Copa del Rey victory over Atletico Madrid this week, he did not hesitate to make a bit of extra time for the boy.

Suarez was leaving the Vicente Calderon to board the team bus when the group passed through a throng of supporters looking to get a glimpse of the reigning Spanish champions up close.

When the striker noticed the Uruguayan fan, however, he cut short his conversation with Lionel Messi and called him over.

Suarez then proceeded to give the youngster a hug and sign his flag - and then really made his night by pulling out one of his match shirts as a gift.

The fan looked like he did not want to let go of his idol and the other fans, noticing Suarez's gesture, applauded and chanted the 30-year-old's name.

Suarez has scored 22 goals in 30 games for Barca this season and has netted 106 in total in 126 appearances since joining the club from Liverpool for around €80 million in 2014.
