VIDEO: "Miracle" as Frenchman in wheelchair stands up for the boys in the green

Praise for the Ireland fans in France has come from all corners of the earth at this stage, to the point that some have begun to grow weary of the coverage.

A common refrain among the curmudgeons are 'next you'll tell us they defeated ISIS/reversed Brexit/healed the sick'.

Well, these lads on a Lyon train after Ireland's loss to Paris haven't quite healed the sick... But they've come close. In a way.

Footage has emerged on YouTube on the jonasnation channel of the Ireland fans breaking into their classic 'Stand up for the boys in green' chant on a train carriage, and a wheelchair-bound French man responding accordingly.
