Everton's Romelu Lukaku proves he's a class act on and off the pitch

Barkley, Lukaku, Barry

He may be massive, but this lad has got a heart of gold!

 

Turns out Everton's Romelu Lukaku is not only an absolute tank on the pitch, but he's a bloomin' good bloke off it!

The Big Belgian managed to crush Southampton in the first half of today's early kick-off at St Mary's, but it was what he did off the pitch which caught the headlines.

During the warm-up, Lukaku managed to send a shot into the sands, hitting a poor woman right between the eyes. Now, he could have either done nothing and just got on with training or he could have just apologised from afar. However, Romelu has manners and popped up to the stands to give the women a big ol' hug, what a true gent! 

Now, he may say it was an accident, but going by his performance for Roberto Martinez's men in the first-half at Saint Mary's we reckon he was just getting some target practice in on that woman. 

In fact, have you seen his eye lately...
