SADIO MANE handed his Liverpool shirt to a young ball boy in touching fashion after his two goals helped Liverpool to Uefa Super Cup glory.
The Senegalese scored twice – once in normal time and once in extra time – as the Reds drew 2-2 before beating Chelsea 5-4 on penalties.
But his actions off the pitch also drew plaudits online.
The forward was subbed off after 103 minutes – making way for Reds’ Champions League hero Divock Origi – and was spotted making the heartwarming gesture on the bench soon after.
As the young ball-boy walked past, the 27-year-old gestured to the youngster to approach.
With a stern look on his face, the ex-Southampton man reached behind his back and produced a shirt which he threw to the boy before a grin spread across his face.
The young lad was clearly delighted and he leaned forward and gave the star a hug.
