Leeds United supporting policeman in Wales became a viral hit.

As I said on Twitter, its nice to see the police treat football fans as actual people, not as an invading barbarian horde. It doesn’t hurt that he supports Leeds, of course, but this just goes to show that treating football fans the right way goes a long way to keeping the peace and spreading some good will.
