Pic: Pure class from Leeds United’s Stuart Dallas with this incredible gesture for a grieving husband

While Johnny Evans and Chris Brunt deservedly took all the plaudits for their performances in Northern Ireland’s impressive 2-0 win over the Czech Republic, it was Stuart Dallas who won the hearts of football fans around the world with a touching gesture towards a fan and his family.

A winger by trade for Leeds United, Stuart reached out to do his bit for a grieving family from his native Cookstown in Northern Ireland and what a touching gesture that turned out to be.

Dallas reportedly offered tickets to Jonathan Smyth and his kids for the game against the Czech Republic in an effort to show his solidarity and lift up their spirits after Smyth’s wife Jolene O’Hagan tragically passed away two months back.

Needless to say, Smyth was truly taken aback by the show of goodwill from the footballer and made sure to make his gratitude known by posting the story on social media.
