The Holland Pavilion has paid homage to the former football star Clarence Seedorf with a rose. Not just a flower however, but the orange variety Clarence Seedorf+.

The talented Dutchman was also honored with a dance performance and received a bouquet of Clarence Seedorf+ roses with a ball in the middle
