We don't often get a chance to see Premier League stars doing good deeds, but Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney has shown his soft side.

United fan James received an early Christmas surprise when Rooney showed up with a special gift.

James couldn’t believe it when the Manchester United and England captain stepped out from behind a screen and presented him with a signed shirt and VIP tickets to an upcoming match.

Premier League football clubs would be wise to stage more events like this, with Rooney clearly delighted to give up his time to make young James' day.
