The world's greatest basketball player has given away many of his millions over the years.

He's used his family foundation to generate more than £30million for his After-School All-Stars scheme, as well as other charities like The Boys and Girls Club of America and Smithsonian National Museum of African American History, which both received over £2million.

He loves to give back to the city where he was born too, paying for 1,000 Ohio kids to go to college and during the pandemic, making sure that 1,300 people in his home town, Akron, had food on the table.

"I just know that so many kids in my community just don't have many options," LeBron said. "For me to be able to be in a position to give these kids options to decide what they want to do with their future, it's probably the best thing I've ever done.

"So to be able to give free tuition to my inaugural kids in my ... it doesn't... it's crazy." The sports star added: "I mean, free tuition for four years. So they get to decide do they want free tuition [at Kent State] or do they wanna go to Akron U, we have so many options."
