Chelsea and England football star Frank Lampard feared the worst earlier this week when he thought he had run over a 14-year-old boy as he reversed his Range Rover in London.

Instead, he discovered that while the schoolboy was unharmed, his bike had been left in a mangled heap, prompting the midfielder to give £200 to the surprised youngster.

Lampard’s agent, Steve Kutner, told the Mirror: “All sorts of things were going through Frank's mind. He saw the bike in his mirror and was sure he'd run the boy over.”

He continued: "Frank checked the lad was OK and asked how much the bike cost.

"The boy said it was worth £100, so Frank gave him £200 in cash. It was the least he could do.

"If anything Frank was more upset than the boy," Kutner added.

What a nice chap, (kids should have said £300 he he)

Luckily nobody got hurt though.

Well at least he stops compared to his team mate... Devil
