Kind List

Sadio Mané

The football star built a school and hospital in his native Senegal

The Liverpool footballer is more than aware of how lucky he is to be earning the big bucks in the Premier League and is not afraid to pay it forward.

Sometimes that's by taking the time to notice a ballboy and give him a present, or help clean up his local mosque after a game.

"Millions of people follow me. It's important to try to set a good example for all the young people." - Sadio Mané

Other times that means donating £250,000 to build a school in his village Bambali in Senegal, contribute towards building a hospital and then popping along to see how his old village is getting along.

"I remember my sister was also born at home because there is no hospital in our village. It was a really, really sad situation for everyone. I wanted to build one to give people hope," he said. 

One of the kindest guys in sport.
