Posted on October 11, 2016

Fresh from scoring two goals for Bosnia and Herzegovina as they won 2-0 against Cyprus last night, footballer Edin Dzeko posted a video on his Facebook page where he signed a message for his Deaf fans.

The video, which features an interpreter and sees Dzeko donating a signed shirt before signing a message, has already been seen nearly 200,000 times.

The messages below the video say:

“My Father was so happy to see this!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!!! Nobody thinks about deaf people in the world! Thank you so much!!!!”

While a Deaf man said: “Thank you buddy from the heart.”
