WOLVES stopper Rui Patricio delighted a freezing young mascot by giving him his jacket moments before their clash against Watford.

The Portuguese No1 was lining up in the tunnel behind the youngster, who was leading the team out alongside captain Conor Coady.

While all the other Premier League stars were wrapped up in jackets and snoods, the boy stood shivering in his Wolves away kit.

Patricio noticed that he was feeling the cold and tapped him on the shoulder to ask if he wanted to wear his jacket.

The boy nodded and the 31-year-old duly obliged by wrapping his coat around the boy while appearing to moan to Coady at the lack of protection from the cold to mascots.

He was obviously delighted and couldn't hide his huge grin, which was picked up by the BT Sports camera.

The footage was posted on social media with fans praising the Portuguese international for his kindness.

One said: "Players should always remember just how much these little things mean to the kids."

Another added: "The little things that right there probably made the kids night more than being a mascot you know why..... Because you noticed him you interacted with him well done Rui"

A third said: "Noticing a thing like that at that particular moment tells you a lot about this guy.. good man..."

Patricio is not the only player to show his generosity and Arsenal star Hector Bellerin showed a similar act to a cold mascot in October.

And in 2018, Israel went one better after their entire team gave Scotland mascots their jackets before their international clash.
