A graceful practice that the Japanese football team has come to perfect has once again won them the world's praise on social media

Japan's players left their dressing room at the Asian Cup in Abu Dhabi spotless despite suffering a disappointing defeat in the final against Qatar.

Their class off the pitch was first hailed by the official account of the Asian Cup, which tweeted a picture of Japan's dressing room, which was immaculately clean.

They reportedly cleaned the dressing room, left the floor spotless and sorted all rubbish.

The β€˜Thank You’ note was written in Arabic, Japanese, and English.
