Dybala And Iturbe Put Rivalry Aside To Help The Homeless
It's not often you'll see two players from either side of the Turin divide work together, but Juventus' Paolo Dybala and Torino's on loan forward Juan Iturbe have put city rivalries aside to help the homeless people in the city.
The incredible act of generosity saw Dybala and Iturbe, who is currently on a season long loan from Roma, take to the streets of Turin at night to deliver food and blankets to the city's homeless community, who are currently suffering through freezing winter conditions.

Temperatures are reported to have dropped to as low as -10c and Turin paper La Stampa pictured the pair making their deliveries as part of an appeal that was started by Rome businessman Luca La Mesa, who took to social media recently to request that people help him provide for the country's needy.
Blankets have been handed out across many of Italy's largest cities, including Rome, Milan, Genoa and Brescia.
Dybala and Iturbe also visited homeless shelter Sant'Egidio, serving food and drink those who needed it.
An amazing gesture and one we hope more footballers get on board with.
