22 year old Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has impressed football fans across the country, but not only with his football abilities but also showing the compassionate side of him.

Prior to the yesterday’s kick off at Southampton, the Belgian hitman fired a wayward, warm-up effort into the stands, where it struck a Saints-supporting lady.

Not content with the obligatory raised hand of apology from the pitch, Lukaku wasted no time in jumping into the stands to check the woman was okay.

He even gave her a big hug for her troubles, and she would soon need consoling again, as the Everton striker headed the Toffees into the lead midway through the first half.

Although, he did not show any mercy on the field as he scored a brace for the Toffees to beat Southampton 3-0.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez joked that striker Romelu Lukaku should ‘hit a woman in every game’ after the Belgium international put in a fine display against Southampton.
