England star Raheem Sterling dazzled supporters with his fantastic performance against Kosovo on Tuesday evening, but it was his touch of class off the pitch which only further elevated his already lofty status in the hearts and minds of supporters everywhere.
The Manchester City forward handed his football boots to a starstruck fan after the match, who was clearly overcome with joy by Sterling’s gift.
The winger was taking some time out to sign autographs for England supporters, when a young fan begged him for his boots.
The official England Twitter account posted the video, as the 24-year-old duly obliged, kicking off his studs and handing them to the lucky supporter who then posed for a photograph with his new possessions
Raheem Sterling really made England likeable. Winston Churchill wishes he was such an icon.
