One day, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un saw the men’s football final of the sports club class in the 12th People’s Games together with Pyongyang citizens.
At break time, he called the players and coaches who exalted the honour of the country by winning different events in the 30th Olympic Games.
Those gold medallists and their coaches were so moved and excited.
That day he listened carefully to the stories about their contests and highly praised them, saying the sportspeople who win international games and fly the national flag are true patriots, heroes and charming persons.
Every Korean player on the winner’s rostrum at international games sheds tears, looking up at the national flag being hoisted amid the playing of Patriotic Song, he said passionately.
As they looked at his benevolent image, the players and coaches pledged themselves to make the tune of the national anthem resound throughout the world.
