Frank Lampard proved beyond doubt that he's definitely one of football's good guys after his latest display of kindness against Stoke City.
The Manchester City midfielder swapped shirts with Stoke City teenager Oliver Shenton, who recently lost his mother after a 15-year fight with breast cancer.
The heartwarming moment came after the 17-year-old made his Premier League debut, coming off the bench in Stoke's 4 - 1 loss to the reigning champions on Wednesday evening.
Shenton bravely appeared just two days after attending his mother's funeral and Lampard, who lost his mother in 2008, had a chat with the youngster after the game before swapping shirts with him.
Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has been full of praise for Lampard for taking the time to offer support to his young player.

Speaking in this morning's press conference, Hughes said: "That is a great touch. Obviously Frank has lost close family members as well and maybe that resonated with Frank. I think that shows his class."
Lampard will be departing the Premier League for MLS side New York City at the end of the season. We will certainly miss Lamps for his decency as well as his ability.
