(Video) Spiderman goal celebration! Anis Ben-Hatira pays brilliant tribute to young cancer patient

Hertha Berlin’s Anis Ben-Hatira celebrated his goal in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Schalke in epic fashion.

The Tunisia international whacked on a Spiderman mask to show support for an eight-year-old boy who is battling cancer.

Ben-Hatira met young Jannik, who is recovering from Leukaemia, in October and made a pact with him.

The footballer wrote on social media: “We decided to fight against his illness together. In such moments I realise: a healthy person has 1,000 desires. A sick person just one.

“Cute guy: you promised me to recover and I promised to stay on your side during the chemotherapy. I will visit you regularly.

“In less than six months we will stand in front of the fans at the Olympic stadium and celebrate your recovery.”

Hallo Leute! Vor geraumer Zeit hatte ich euch meinen kleinen Freund Jannik vorgestellt! Das Schicksal hat ihn leider tückisch heimgesucht! Doch auch wenn Jannik ein kleiner Mensch ist, kämpft er gegen diese verdammte Krankheit wie ein riesengroßer Fighter! Seine unglaubliche Tapferkeit dabei bewegt mich immens. Ich habe versucht meinen kleinen Freund so gut es nur geht durch diese schwere Zeit zu begleiten. Einen ersten Erfolg konnten wir nun verbuchen, worüber wir unheimlich glücklich sind! Es geht ihm nun Gott sein Dank wieder besser! Und als Zeichen meines tiefen Respekts werde ich daher bei einem der nächsten Heimspiele mit Jannik ins Olympiastadion einlaufen! Sein Kämpferherz wird selbst der Rasen spüren und dann auf uns Spieler übertragen! Lieber Jannik, du bist mein kleiner großer Held! Bald kommt DEIN großer Auftritt! 😉 Dein Änis! #cancer #mysuperhero #fighter #life #jannik Hi guys, a few month ago I introduced you to my friend Jannik. Jannik got hit by his fortune in a really bad way and he is fighting against cancer. Even thought he is a little man – he fights like Superman against his illness. Jannik puts bravery on another level and I am totally impressed by his will and strength. It was a very hard time and Jannik and his whole family suffered a lot. I tried my very best to be always on his side and luckily we can say now: there seems to be progress. As a sign of my admiration I asked Jannik if he would do me a favor within the next weeks. I would love to enter the Olympic Stadium on his side! His braveness will be an example for all of us. Jannik, you are my little superhero! I am blessed to be part of the moment when you enter the stage again! Yours, Änis #cancer #mysuperhero #fighter #life #jannik
