Jesse Lingard stuns school kids and buys them free ice cream in amazing gesture from the Man Utd star

The 26-year-old showed his class last month when he paid a group of AFC Wimbledon fans £600 of his own money after missing a penalty on Sky's Soccer AM show.

Lingard's latest act of generosity saw the midfielder treat the children at Saint Margaret's school before staying around to sign autographs and pose for pictures.

In a video on his Instagram page, the England international excitedly says: "Man's going to the ice cream van, yeah!" as his entourage and fans followed suit.

The wonderful gesture was lauded online with Matt's Ices writing: "What a lovely gesture from a great footballer" and parents thanking him for making their child's day.

It's not the first time Lingard has reached into his own pocket to help fans out after he splashed out on a group of Wimbledon fans who had lost the chance of winning £500.

The Manchester United star needed to score a penalty for the supporters to win the cash on Sky's Soccer AM show this morning but to their despair, he saw his spot-kick saved.

However, after the programme had ended, the popular playmaker was seen giving £600 to the group of Dons fans so they could enjoy their weekend.

And back in 2017, Lingard once again stunned a bunch of youngsters by joining in their kickabout after they had run over to his car during United's pre-season tour of America.

Lingard is currently enjoying his best season to date and recently revealed one of the secrets behind his form was a personal duel with team-mate Marcus Rashford.

He said: “Marcus and me have been setting targets for each other to challenge ourselves.

“I’m not going to go into the amount of numbers involved because then everyone will know.

“It’s to do with goals, but not just how many we can score each. Assists as well.”
