N’Golo Kante Clearing Away Training Equipment Is The Most Heartwarming Thing You’ll See Today
N'Golo Kante already has the reputation of being one of the nicest men in football, and this footage shared of him clearing away the training equipment at the end of a session only enhances that.
The 2018 World Cup winner showed that no task is beneath him, as he picks up the posts while casually dribbling a ball.

The 30-year-old has gained plenty of attention for his acts of humility over the years and completely goes against the stereotype of a flashy Premier League footballer.
There are many brilliant stories showcasing Kante's down-to-earth nature, which includes how he initially wanted to run to training during his early days at Leicester City.
Planetfootball.com reported the story told by journalist Daniel Taylor, who said: "Kante reckoned it was possible to run into training every day and had to be persuaded that it wasn't usually done that way in the Premier League."
Kante received a huge wage increase when he made the switch from Leicester to Chelsea, but felt no need to upgrade his Mini Cooper for something more outlandish. He even drove it to training two days after a crash, which saw the wing mirror held up by gaffer tape with the front wheel arch missing.
The Sun also tells the story of Kante choosing to dine out at the Italian high street chain restaurant Pizza Express, where he posed for photos, shook hands with staff and appeared to sign an autograph on a napkin.
Kante is continuing to go from strength to strength on the pitch too, after making his 200th Premier League appearance in Chelsea's 3-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.
The Blues are back in action on Tuesday night when they play Malmo in the Champions League group stages.
