In his last post on Twitter before he died of a heart attack, Ugo Ehiogu wrote about a random act of kindness
Former Middlesbrough goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer told BBC Radio 5, “He was a tremendous person, a tremendous character, a dedicated footballer and dedicated to his family. He was a great guy to be around, so full of life and so enthusiastic.”
In his final posting on Twitter, Ehiogu, shared a bit of his generous nature, when he tweeted “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.”
After news of Ehiogu’s death was reported, his fans took to Twitter themselves to encourage each other to commit their own random acts of kindness.
And, in a tribute to Ehiogu, his hashtag #dosomethingkind is trending on Twitter:
