    Tottenham Under-23 coach Ehiogu suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday while at the club’s training centre, and he was rushed to Hospital after receiving immediate treatment where he collapsed.

    Spurs confirmed the sad news on Friday that the former Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Sheffield United defender had died in the early hours of the morning.
    A wave of emotion immediately took over social media with heartfelt tributes being paid by clubs, managers, players and fans, but they were soon overtaken by the use of Ehiogu’s own, final tweet.
    The tribute was a fitting one, given he had given money to a homeless person last month, and he included the hashtag #dosomethingkind at the end of the post.
    The tweet read: “Gave a homeless girl 10 last night in Dalston.She didn't ask or beg.Random impulsive act from me. Not gona lie. Felt good. #dosomethingkind.”
    Social media users immediately started to copy the hashtag into their tributes to the ex-footballer in an effort to build a heartwarming legacy in his name.
    TV presenter Leon Mann wrote: “Ugo's last tweet. Hope #dosomethingkind is trending soon. The world needs kindness.”

    Being a Villa man of 30 years a great man as been lost today, both as a footballer and as a general all round human being. Merson's SSN Interviewed summed up everything for me, my heart goes out to his family. RIP UGO......

    Yes sad day for the game when a player who was respected on and off the pitch passes so early. 44 is no age and I feel for his family and all those that knew him. RIP.

    It's always a shock to hear of the passing of an athlete at such a young age...44 is so very
    young.


    Growing up here in the U.S. without football - AT ALL - in the 80's was tough. Very tough.
    (we moved here in 1980)

    In the late 90's, we finally (FINALLY!) began to get coverage of the game here, the English
    Premier League first (thank god), and so came my re-exposure, reintroduction back to
    the game I loved, and with it an education for me, on who was who, in the game, in the 90's.

    I wanted to know who every single player was - all the stars, and besides watching every
    team, and match that was broadcast here, I also got sent many sports papers by my Aunt
    (god rest her soul) who lived in Nottingham.

    Of course Ugo Ehiogu was one of those players, and names you don't forget. Especially for me,
    as being able to see the game again, for the first time since 1980 when I'd left England, was
    like being a kid on Christmas day - every single time I got to watch a match. Just such a treat
    to see it all again. And it was all those 90's generation stars like Ugo I got to see.


    Rest in Peace Ugo
