Eden Hazard made the day for a lot of children as he acted as a mascot for his former youth team, Royal Stade Brainois.

The Chelsea star visited Royal Stade Brainois in the town of Brain-Le-Comte, Belgium, to pay a special visit to the club’s youngsters.

Hazard played for Brainois until the age of 12, where he was snapped up by Belgian second tier side Tubize. He spent two years with them, before moving to France to join Lille and you know the rest of the story.

Hazard walked out alongside the senior team before a match and posed in the team photo ahead of kick-off while wearing a club scarf.

He spent the rest of the afternoon posing for pictures and signing shirts, as he was well received by the kids, as plenty of them appeared to have replica Chelsea shirts with ‘Hazard 17’ printed on the back.

This isn’t the first time the 26-year-old has tried to remember his roots. In December 2014, he gifted the club’s youth players a new Nike training kit over the Christmas period.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
