Lukaku Says Everton Best Place to Grow and Develop

Soccer player Romelu Lukaku isn't going to let fierce competition stand in the way of chivalry.

The Everton striker accidentally kicked a ball during his warm up into the stands, hitting an opposing team's fan.

Instead of idly sitting by, Lukaku quickly ran up the stands to apologize profusely to the woman, giving her a big hug. Aw!

The entire rival section gave the striker a well-deserved round of applause.

It's no surprise that the kind gesture resulted in the player trending all over Twitter today, with both Everton and Southampton supporters recognizing the kind act.
