John Terry's transgressions can't be ignored but the Chelsea captain has always possessed a generous streak that few have heard about, until now.

Terry sent a sincere message to Chelsea fan Louise, who contacted him on Instagram after her mother recently passed away.

“Good morning, I’m so very sorry to hear the terrible news of your mum passing. I would love to send you one of my match shirts and sign it to you. To know I and Chelsea can help you through this very difficult time would be an honour for me. You need to continue your mums legacy and be strong but never be afraid to cry and think of those fantastic memories. Over time it will get easier.

Lots of love JT.

I really hope you accept my shirt. X”

It's certainly made her day...
