​The football world has been in mourning on Friday after it was announced Tottenham coach Ugo Ehiogu died following a cardiac arrest.

Tributes have been pouring in from figures throughout English football, but Ehiogu’s final tweet on social media has been retweeted over 7,000 times following his passing, with the post describing the former defender’s encounter with a homeless woman.

He wrote: “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.”

While heartbreaking, the post now shows that one of Ehiogu’s final acts was to help someone in need. Ehiogu’s former Aston Villa team-mate ​Paul Merson paid tribute on Sky Sports while many current and former Premier League footballers took to Twitter to express their condolences.
