Leicester City hero James Maddison sent a signed pair of his football boots to a young fan who missed his winner against Tottenham due to an asthma attack.
Foxes fan Liam Deacy and his son Kian were thrilled when Maddison topped his on-pitch heroics with the kind-hearted gesture.
In his tweet, he explained that his young son had missed Maddison’s goal as he was receiving medical attention.
Mr Deacy tweeted: “Top work Madders!! Gutted we missed the goal but my son was receiving medical attention for an asthma attack.
“He watched it back later & you certainly put a smile on his face after a difficult situation! & the medical team at LCFC should take a bow for their amazing response.”
Maddison responded by saying: “Tell your son I will send him a pair of my signed matchworn @pumafootball boots. Hope he’s ok.”
Young Kian replied, saying: “Thank you @Madders10 that is amazing that you are giving me your boots. I’m fine now I’m gutted I missed the fantastic goal by you. But the people looking after me were great & im feeling much better now.”
Maddison was hailed on Twitter as “top class”, “legend”, “a gentleman” and “elite human”, while one Manchester United fan alluded to recent rumours of his club’s interest in the England star, saying: “I want you at MUFC.”
Speaking about him after his long-range winner, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said of Maddison : “James Maddison didn’t have his best game for him, but he is a top level player.
He is a top young player, with so much improvement to make. He always has an eye for goal.”
