Ugo Ehiogu’s touching final Tweet – posted on March 30 – has gone viral.
The former England, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough defender died on Friday after suffering a heart attack at Tottenham’s training ground 24 hours earlier.
But his final Tweet, when he revealed he had given a homeless person £10, has sent Twitter into a frenzy as fans and players paid tribute to the 44-year-old by retweeting it.
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

Ehiogu coached the Spurs Under-23 team and player Shayon Harrison led the tributes.
One of the most genuine, and caring people I’ve ever met.
An honour to have been taught by you, not only as a player, but as a person.
