After helping Chelsea to a 4-1 win against Cardiff over the weekend, N'Golo Kante spent his Saturday evening at a fan's house eating curry and watching Match of the Day.
The World Cup winner had initially missed the Eurostar train from London St Pancras following the win, and decided to visit a mosque in Kings Cross, where he met Arsenal fan
It all started with Kanté missing his Eurostar to Paris, then Googling local mosque, next thing you know man's chomping on rice and curry in next mans yard, playing FIFA and watching himself on MOTD 藍— AbzzyRahman (@abz_gooner) September 16, 2018
Twitter user @jahrul999 was taken aback by the good nature shown by Kante who after being invited to his friend's house was more than happy to spend his evening there.
"I'm a Liverpool fan and most of us are Arsenal fans, but Kante is more than just a footballer. As a Muslim, he is a great role model to us and an example of a good human being," he said.
"He grounds you. He is such a humble person. He doesn't think he is on another level to you.
"Footballers must get annoyed with people asking for photos all of the time, but he was more than happy to take individual photos with us all. You could tell it was a genuine smile," he added.
A Chelsea spokesman confirmed the story and added with a smile: "That's typical N'Golo".
The Blues have made an impressive start to the season under new manager Maurizio Sarri, being one of only two sides to win their opening five Premier League games.
