American Record Holder Melts The Hearts Of Kenyans After This Noble Act To A Fan At Kasarani

American sprinter Trayvon Bromell has won plaudits across the world after his noble act moments after he won the 100 metres race at the Moi International sports center Kasarani melted the hearts of many sports men and women.

Bromell set his personal best record in the race finishing at 9.76 ahead of promising Kenyan sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala who is slowly bursting into the scene and has been touted as the next big thing.

After the race, Bromella was seen gifting a Kenyan fan who had donned an Arsenal shirt and was holding a signboard with the message, "Trayvon Bromell, kindly give me a pair of shoes," to which the athlete responded with the noble gesture.

The 26 year old later on took to his social media account and sent a message to the fan, "Smile, it's free therapy king. Unified, we are one," he wrote.

Olympic gold medalist Francena McCorory and Olympic Bronze medalist Emma Coburn lauded Trayvon for making the fans dream come true with Kenyans equally showering the American with praise.

"Love this. Look at you spreading hope, doing the Lord’s work!"

"Not that we needed one more reason to like you more - that’s all class!" read some of the comments.
