Tottenham’s Dele Alli is taking a leading role in the community by supporting Magic Breakfast, a charity aiming to end hunger as a barrier to education in the UK. 

The Englishman has stepped up, showing the community leadership characteristics that have so often been looked over in the past. He took his fair share of criticism for sending a derisive private video to his friends via What’s App at the outset of the coronavirus.

Anyone who knows Dele understands that he wants to make a positive impact on the community outside of football. Due to his superstar status, Dele is a role model whether he likes it or not. Taking on charitable responsibilities like helping Magic Breakfast curtail hunger in UK school systems will reflect more accurately Dele’s character.

Seeing elite footballers take the impetus to help with philanthropic endeavours during these perilous times helps restore one’s faith in humanity.

There is enough negativity currently in the news to last a lifetime, and seeing stories like these goes a long way to offsetting the darker, solemn side of this pestiferous virus.
