Leicester City

We've really got a lot of time for this! Good work Leicester!

We always love to see it whenever football clubs pull out very, very classy gestures. In recent months, Everton gave two of their young fans great days out, and now Leicester City has joined in with a story that is enough to bring a tear to your eye. 

With Leicester winning over everyone with their antics on the pitch, they've now started winning everyone over with their pretty great gesture to one young Foxes fan.

Nine-year-old Charlie Keyworth was given a VIP tour of the King Power stadium after the club was told of how Charlie lost his mother just two days earlier. 

Speaking to the BBC, the youngster's dad, Mike Keyworth, revealed Leicester's great gesture: "All Charlie wanted was to go to the shop and get a mug and a key-ring. He got an awful lot more and it took his mind off other things for a while."

And it turns out that Charlie's uncle Rob was the one who set it all up for the youngster and wanted the club to make a bit of a fuss about the young man whose great uncle(Ken Keyworth) as a member of the Foxes 1964 League Cup winning team. 

"Basically with no notice Leicester City rolled out the red carpet for a nine-year-old boy who has just lost his mum," Said Rob, adding: "Thank you Leicester. Thank you.

It is a nice story and Leicester deserve credit. In this day and age where the football club get bashed left, right and centre.

"For what was a pretty horrific week, it was something positive at the end of it and nice to remember."

Lovely stuff from Leicester, we've seriously got a lot of time for this and we look forward to seeing what classy gesture they do next!
