It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the death of Ugo Ehiogu.
The ex-premier league footballer who was a coach at Tottenham Hostpurs died at the age of 44 after suffering a heart attack in training. The reactions to this on social media has been quite spectacular. Starting with the last tweet sent out by the absolute gentleman which was about being kind to people who can’t repay us.
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
