Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain reduced a Liverpool fan to tears with the wonderful gesture of giving him and his son Champions League final tickets.
Only 16,626 tickets have been allocated for each set of travelling fans and they have been like gold-dust with many left disappointed.
And when Oxlade-Chamberlain caught wind of two loyal followers who missed out on the ballot, he was determined to help.

Joe Jaggar and his son Bobbi had already felt the midfielder’s generosity after he gave them his match-shirt following the Manchester City fixture.
And after his latest act of kindness, Jaggar tweeted: ‘When he got wind that me and Bobbi were struggling for tickets, he went out of his way to get us a pair, beyond words.’
He told the Liverpool Echo: ‘It’s an unbelievable gesture.
‘When the message dropped late on Friday night I was speechless. I’m not ashamed to say that when I read it I started crying.
‘I couldn’t believe it. We booked flights weeks ago but after we missed out on all four of our cards in the ballot I was gutted.
‘Bobbi is Liverpool mad and after going to the games against Porto, Man City and Roma he was desperate to watch the final in Kiev. This will be his first European away.’
Joe then went on to add that Oxlade-Chamberlain should be nominated for Sports Personality of the Year for his gesture.

The duo are no strangers to rubbing shoulders with their heroes, with Bobbi also in a picture with Roberto Firmino on his dad’s social media account.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s generosity is heightened by the fact that he won’t be involved in the showpiece tie against Real Madrid.
Having suffered a season-ending knee injury in the semi-final against Roma, the former Arsenal man will only be able to watch on from the stands on May 26.
But he’ll be safe in the knowledge that his act of kindness allowed an incredibly special night for two deserving fans.
