A proud father has shared a picture of his son holding a minute's silence - before starting to play his game of football.

Charlie had set up his model players in two lines before he told his dad to keep quiet and observe he silence.

Thousands of fans fell silent this week at football matches across the country and Charlie was not going to have his tiny players miss their chance to show their respect.

After getting such a response to his picture avid Arsenal fan Wayne Hughes shared a message from Charlie on Twitter.

Standing in front of his miniature football pitch and wearing a poppy Charlie says:

Thank you for my messages and up the Arsenal!

Charlie, Arsenal fan

Wayne has also thanked those who have supported him and his young son.
