Bayern Munich have made an incredible gesture to refugees
A really generous gesture from the German champions

A really generous gesture from the German champions.

This week, we brought you the tragic images of Aylan Kurdi - the three-year-old boy who drowned while attempting to flee Syria.

Today, European giants Bayern Munich have announced plans to play their part in tackling the European migration crisis.

The idea is to provide refugees with football training camps and German language lessons, by donating over one million euro.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said: "Bayern sees it as our social responsibility to help the refugees, needy children, women and men, to help them, and to accompany them in Germany."

The fantastic gesture will be backed by the Bayern players this weekend, who will hold the hand of a refugee and German youngster as they take to the field against FC Augsburg.

A great story.
