Fans spot Jack Grealish's 'class act' gesture to visually impaired girl but it causes awkward moment for head of Uefa | The Sun
JACK GREALISH has been labelled a "class act" after taking time to chat to a visually impaired mascot after the Super Cup final.
Fans spotted the winger making the touching gesture as he went to collect his winners' medal along with his team-mates.
He even made his City pals wait to collect their medals as he chatted to the young girl, who is visually impaired.
Grealish, 27, caused an awkward moment for Uefa President Aleksander Ceferin, who twice went to shake the England international's hand before finally placing a medal around his neck.
Fans appreciated Grealish's gesture and praised the England star for his kindness.
One said: "What a great guy 🤩 Such a genuine, caring, humble,
ordinary bloke who is always prepared to give up his time for folk whoever they may be and this is no act, this is him just as he is… but that’s why he’s a top bloke."
