Arsenal star midfielder Mesut Ozil on Monday gifted a Kenyan herds boy with his jersey, a new pair of boots and caps.

Ozil through social media, stated that the decision was inspired after he saw a tweet of the boy identified as Lawrence wearing a self-made shirt donning his jersey number.

The German-born player went a step further and extended the gesture to Lawrence’s brother.

“The picture of a Kenyan boy with a self-made shirt on Twitter touched me so much. And look at Lawrence now

“It's so heart warming to see him and his brother happy,” read a post by Ozil.

Lawrence fortunes changed after sports reporter Eric Njiru from Homeboyz radio, tweeted how he interacted with the young boy and learnt that he was a huge supporter of the former Real Madrid player.
