It's Manchester United kit day today - so this Indonesian supporter sends in picture of him wearing black shirt at father's funeral

The fan suitably wore black

In case you didn't know, it's Manchester United kit day today, the day when the club asks their supporters from all over the world to send in pictures of them wearing the shirt.

While many of the pictures were of fans going to work in their Red Devils attire, one Indonesian supporter, whose Twitter feed is full of images of him wearing United shirts, took the club's request to the very word - and posted this picture from his father's funeral. And as it was a funeral, the fan suitably wore black - United's black away shirt from the 1994/95 season to be precise.

United are yet to retweet the emotional picture, although other fan groups from the club have picked up on it, labelling it as "inspirational".

And some more treats from #MUFCkitday:

United are currently over in America at the moment, as they prepare for the new season under Louis van Gaal.
