Marcus Rashford makes classy gesture to hospital worker with COVID-19

Marcus Rashford is quickly becoming one of the most likeable football players across the world.

The Manchester United forward has made his latest lovely gesture by pledging to provide a boost to a superfan who has been struck down by the coronavirus.

Will Howe got in contact with Rashford via twitter noting that his dad Peter, who works as a porter at West Suffolk hospital, has been admitted to the same hospital testing positive for COVID-19. Howe asked if there is anything Rashford can do to give his father a boost and the England forward said he’ll get in touch to help him out via direct message.

It’s fantastic to see Rashford helping out supporters who have been worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The 22-year-old should be proud of the way he has handled himself during this unprecedented lockdown period. Rashford has surprised a number of reds on social media by calling them and cheering them up. But more importantly, he has also done some incredible work for charity.

As reported by the Independent, Rashford has revealed that the charity he teamed up with FairShare has raised more than £20m to help vulnerable children who are dependent on free school meals.

We’d like to wish Peter all the best in recovering from the virus.
