VIDEO: Lukaku hugs a fan he accidentally hits with football

Leaps into stand to apologise personally to Southampton supporter.

Romelu Lukaku hugs fan
NICE: Moment (Image: Twitter/Football Tips)

Feel all fuzzy inside as Everton striker Romelu Lukaku hugs a fan he accidentally hit with a football prior to scoring twice in yesterday’s 3-0 win at Southampton.

The Belgian was on fire at the St Mary’s Stadium in yesterday’s lunchtime kick-off, but he obviously hadn’t fully laced his shooting boots for the pre-match warm-up.

One wayward shot went cannoning into the stands and hit a Saints supporter, thankfully not hard enough to do her any discernible damage – but Lukaku was nonetheless mortified at what he’d just done.

So much so, in fact, that he leapt into the stand in order to apologise to her in person and hand her his training shirt as a memento.

Now watch and go all gooey as Lukaku hugs a fan…

Karma: Go to hug a fan you accidentally hit in warm-ups, score two first-half goals. #Lukaku http://t.co/SjjGUMmSMq pic.twitter.com/jR7FoLQx3b

Final word to this guy…

Lukaku accidentally hits a fan with the football and apologises. No wonder he couldn’t make it under Jose Mourinho.
