Alexis Sanchez is revered in Chile, with his fans treating him much like a god. It’s easy to see why they have such adoration for him, as he regularly proves that he is a man of the people and an all-round good guy.

His most recent act of kindness was captured on video during a training session, with the 26-year-old gifting a pair of football boots to an up and coming young footballer.
The youngster is clearly thrilled with his new footwear and runs off to show his friends – kissing the boots as he goes. He posed for pictures after returning to his teammates, celebrating the present he’d been given by the former Barcelona star.
Currently on international duty back in his homeland for the Copa America, Alexis has helped his side fire themselves to the final. He will be hoping to go all the way with a victory over Argentina, with Chile in the final for the first time in 28 years.
