It always seems like it's the good ones that go the earliest.

Ugo Ehiogu was just 44, married to his wife Gemma and had one son when he collapsed at Tottenham's training centre yesterday (Thursday) before passing away in the early hours of this morning.

He had his full life ahead of him.

While tributes have been flooding in on social media, Twitter users have been quick to highlight Ehiogu's final tweet, which he sent on March 29 of this year.

It read: "Gave a homeless girl £10 last night in Dalston.She didn't ask or beg.Random impulsive act from me. Not gona lie. Felt good. #dosomethingkind."

A small gesture, maybe. But incredibly kind all the same.
