Video footage showed Brady walking over to the stands and reaching up to place the Tampa Bay cap on the boy’s head.

Overwhelmed by emotions, the boy then bursts into tears and holds both of his hands over his face. 

Speaking during a post-match press conference, Brady spoke about the heartwarming encounter and said: ‘Puts a lot in perspective, what we’re doing on the field. In the end, it doesn’t mean much compared to what so many people go through.’

The act of kindness rounded off a stellar night for Brady who also became the first player in history to throw 600 touchdown passes.

Tampa defeated the Bears 38-3, with Brady throwing four touchdown passes and star wide receiver Mike Evans scoring catching Brady’s record pass.

Despite history having been made, Fox News reports that Evans gave away the ball thrown by Brady for his historic 600th touchdown pass to a fan in the crowd. 

A member of the Tampa Bay staff reportedly later approached the fan and struck a deal to retrieve the ball – which could be worth as much as $500,000, according to Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions.
