The cutest moment in the World Cup postgame came when German teammates Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lukas Podolski did this air kiss on worldwide TV seen by hundreds of millions:

Podolski then followed it up with this tweet that has been shared 85,000 times:

What a change it has been to watch Germany from a decade ago when they were stern and robotic. This team smiles and has fun and I am glad they finally won it all. Podolski carried his young son all around the pitch after the win over Argentina and teammates and coaches all stopped to take a photo. Podolski did not play in the final and barely in the tournament, but the veteran was as happy as anyone else.
