India national football team skipper, Sunil Chhetri is without doubt the most popular footballer in the country with the striker holding a number of records and is the all-time highest goalscorer for the national team.

Chhetri is also known for being a humble figure off the field and he was at it again as the striker once again won million hearts with a surprising reply to one of his fans on social networking site, Twitter.

A Bengaluru FC and Indian football fan started a thread on Twitter mentioning Chhetri in the hope of getting a response from the India skipper, and he continued to do the same for the sixty days following which he got a response from the superstar.

Chhetri took on Twitter to reply back, "Took longer than it should have, but here you go."

This is not the first time that the 37-year-old has surprised his fans on social media as he shared a screenshot of his Netflix password when a fan asked him for the password in order to overcome his boredom during the COVID-19 pandemic last year.

To sweeten the deal for the fan, he ended up getting a two-month Netflix subscription and a signed jersey from the legend himself.
