Medel apparently missed Cardiff's bus so, like everyone else, hopped on the train in Manchester to get back to Wales.

Fans were delighted at his 'man of the people' showing - although you would hardly expect anything else from a player whose nickname is 'Pitbull':
So yeah Gary Medel just got on the train. Travelling with the lads like. pic.twitter.com/bpeqV1MCSQ

The story made the news in his native Chile too - this fan Tweeted a pic with Medel, and subsequently appeared on Norwegian TV of all things.
Even more heartwarming was the nature of his ticket - Medel sat in economy class with everyone else. Good lad.
