Mesut Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo and football's altruists: 12 footballers with big, big hearts
10. Paolo Di Canio
After 200 loyal Swindon fans had shovelled snow off the County Ground pitch into the early hours in January 2013 to ensure their team's league game went ahead, manager Paolo Di Canio, not for the first or last time on his life, felt "overwhelmed with emotion".
Deciding that the shovelling diehards needed a reward, he reacted in the only way a passionate Italian can, and treated them to a job lot of pizzas. Problem was they were wolfed within a few minutes. Paolo should have opted for some extra toppings.
