According to The Sun, the tough-tackling right-back used R220 000 of his own earnings to donate protective gloves to doctors in Kinshasa, Congo, which is also his father's homeland.

"AWB" has joined many footballers around the world, including United captain Harry Maguire and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, who have tirelessly helped in combatting the pandemic.
