N'Golo Kante refused to time-waste in the dying moments of the Champions League final and it's further proof he's too pure for this world.
Chelsea ran out 1-0 winners over Manchester City and Kante was a well-deserved Man of the Match, dominating the midfield.
But above all else, Kante is a kind soul and it was proven late on in Porto. Most players would stay down after being fouled seconds before the final whistle... but Kante isn't most players.
The Frenchman immediately got back on his feet with a beaming smile that is so, so infectious.

His teammates were probably desperate for him to stay on the deck, but the Frenchman doesn't have a bad bone in his body.
Fans have reacted to the incident and they think it's further proof there is no nicer man in sport than Kante.

I think the best part about the game last night was when N'Golo Kanté won a free-kick late on, thought about staying down to waste time and catch his breath and then shot straight back up because he hasn't got it in him.- Jordan (@FourFourJordan) May 30, 2021
Absolutely adore the guy.

Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta paid tribute to Kante at full-time and dubbed the 30-year-old as one of the world's greatest midfielders.
"He does everything, he brings so much energy. The way he drives the ball forward, he covers so much ground.
"For him as well after winning the World Cup, winning the Champions League, he's so humble as a person, and I'm just so happy for him.
"He's a massive part of this team so I'm so happy to have him next to me."
