Ugo Ehiogu died this morning aged 44 after collapsing at Tottenham's training ground on Thursday.
Tributes have been pouring in for the former Aston Villa and Middlesbrough footballer after the club confirmed his passing earlier today.
Ehiogu's last tweet, posted last month, urged people to do something kind after giving £10 to the homeless in Dalston.
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— Ugo Ehiogu (@UgoEhiogu) March 29, 2017
And, in honour of his memory, fans are spreading the message.
Let some good come from the sad loss of Ugo and #dosomethingkind I am going to donate to our local homeless charity.— jon frost (@frostj1) April 21, 2017
Former team-mate Lee Hendrie, who played with Ehiogu at Villa Park and with Sheffield United ,paid tribute on Sky Sports: "This is an absolute shock, to think this could happen to a man of his fitness and age. It is devastating, crazy.
"He was such a character, bubbly and would help anyone. He was a great guy to have around and never had problems with anyone. He was a gentle giant."
Boro said they were "deeply saddened to learn of the tragic passing" and Mark Schwarzer, who played with Ehiogu at the Riverside, told BBC Radio 5 Live: "He loved the game and he was really respected at Tottenham. It was a pleasure to play with him."
Former club Aston Villa will hold a minute's applause ahead of their derby with Birmingham on Sunday.
