CHELSEA midfielder N’Golo Kante has been spotted doing his food shop in Asda as fans praise him for being one of the humblest footballers around.
The 30-year-old, who has won almost all there is to win for both club and country, was snapped by a fan also doing his shopping.

And Sarfaz Ahmed had nothing but glowing words for Kante after meeting the French midfielder.
Speaking on Twitter, he said: “Went out for some casual grocery shopping at Asda and look who I bumped in to.
“@nglkante what a player and what a human being! Very kindly took a picture with me and was so polite.
“Listened patiently to what I had to say, so humble for a player of such class!”
Reacting to the photo, one person hilariously referenced his remarkable workrate and engine on the pitch by saying: “Is it true he was down every aisle at the same time?”
And another added: “Hangs in the cheddar section – gets a foot in if anyone fancies themselves a big cheese.”

While a third said: “Pretty impressive he managed to do the shopping for the guy as well as doing his own.”
Incredibly, the 5ft 6in star drives the SAME Mini Cooper he bought when he first arrived on our shores with Leicester in 2015.
Kante paid around £20,000 for the motor – when it was new – six years ago after arriving from Caen for £5.6m.
So enamoured with it, he sent that car to France, where he drives it whenever he returns home and soon replaced it with an identical Mini soon after to drive to Cobham.

Kante is currently in the running for the Ballon d’Or after yet another stellar season with Chelsea.
The Frenchman, who won the World Cup in 2018, played a major part in Thomas Tuchel’s side lifting the Champions League trophy in May.
He has forged a sensational partnership in the middle of the park with Italian maestro Jorginho.
