Ugo Ehiogu’s final tweet is inspiring football fans to ‘do something kind’
The final tweet sent by former footballer Ugo Ehiogu before his death encouraged his followers to #dosomethingkind – and now people are doing just that.
The Tottenham under-23 coach suffered a cardiac arrest at Spurs’ training ground on Thursday, and died in the early hours of Friday morning.
In his final tweet Ehiogu relayed the story of giving a homeless person Â£10, and signed off with a hashtag people are now using to remember him and build a legacy around his name.
The former Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, West Brom, Sheffield United, Rangers and England defender has inspired football fans with his words.
Ehiogu joined Spurs as a coach in 2014, and the club said in a statement his “immense presence will be irreplaceable”.
Shayon Harrison, who came through Tottenham’s youth team, described Ehiogu as “one of the most genuine and caring people” he had ever met.
