Footballers at Leyton Orient have been captured on video celebrating their recent promotion by singing a worship song in their changing room.

The heart-warming moment was shared by 'Ballers in God' on Instagram, showing the players singing 'Old Church Basement', a popular Christian song by Maverick City Music and Elevation Worship.


The footballers can be heard singing the lyrics: "Hallelujah is all I need. When I think of Your goodness and Your love for me, Oh, the joy of my salvation is coming back to me, It's just an old hallelujah with a new melody."

The video has already been viewed over 30,000 times, capturing the hearts of fans and viewers alike.

Despite a 2-0 loss to Gillingham, Leyton Orient secured promotion out of League 2 as Bradford suffered a defeat against Swindon. The match at Priestfield was interrupted for 23 minutes due to a floodlight failure during the second half.
