Nick Kyrgios may divide opinions with his actions on the court but off it he continues to prove himself one of the classiest players in the game.
‘Saint Nick’ warmed the hearts of not only sporting fans but all Australians on Monday when of offering to help his hungry social media followers.
“Please don’t go to sleep with an empty stomach,” he said in the post.

“Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to send me a private message. I will be more than happy to share whatever I have.
“Even just for a box of noodles, a loaf of bred or milk. I will drop it off at your doorstep, no questions asked!”
Now, Kyrgios is making good with his offer after posting in his Instagram story that he would be heading out to the streets to deliver on his promise.
“Tomorrow I will be doing as many deliveries as I can throughout the day to the nearest people I have been in contact with,” he said.
“If I haven’t read your message yet, trust me I will do my absolute best to get to yours.
“And to my international friends around the world, I wish I could do more, but right now things are tough, stay strong, brighter days are coming.”
Kyrgios’ doubles partner Matt Reid sang praise for the polarising Canberra product, posting on Twitter that this is the “real” side behind the on-camera bravado.
The firebrand has not always been the most popular player but he has made Australians proud that he is representing them in recent months with his leadership in trying times.
