Jude Bellingham wrapped his jacket around a young disabled mascot in a heartwarming video which went viral after England’s draw against Belgium.

Bellingham scored a 95th-minute equaliser at Wembley on Tuesday with the Three Lions drawing 2-2 against the Belgians as they prepare for Euro 2024.

The 20-year-old Real Madrid superstar – regarded as one of the best players in the world – was the hero for more than just his actions on the pitch, though.

Ahead of kick-off, England’s players stood with young mascots, including Bellingham, who was paired with a child in a wheelchair.

The boy, who appeared to be a Manchester City fan, was getting soaked as the rain poured down in the English capital.

Concerned about the youngster, Bellingham looked down and wanted to help him, putting an arm around his shoulder and appearing to whisper in his ear.

The boy was then seen with a massive grin on his face as Bellingham unzipped his England jacket and placed it over him as a blanket.

‘Mature beyond his years,’ one England fan, @JKD_LFC, posted on X. Another Three Lions supporter simply wrote ‘class act’ while a third said it was ‘so nice’.

After the match, Bellingham himself posted: ‘Finally broke my Wembley curse. Proud of how this squad reacted to all the setbacks this week. See you in the summer!’

Bellingham has produced 20 goals and nine assists across 31 games for Real Madrid since he joined the La Liga side from Borussia Dortmund in June 2023.
