Seamus Coleman took legendary status to new level for these delighted Everton fans
Anyone looking for an autgraph from, or selfie with, Seamus Coleman last night did not leave disappointed.
Following Everton's 2-0 win over Chelsea at Goodison Park, many fans lingered outside the players' entrance for a glimpse of their heroes.
By all accounts, Coleman always stops by to thank the Toffees fans for their support. Buoyed by progressing to the FA Cup semi-final, the Irish defender went above and beyond the call of duty.
Coleman spent over half an hour with Everton fans and, at one stage, even spoke to the brother of a supporter when he was handed a phone.
Needless to say, social media was alive with praise for Coleman and the time he gave back to fans.

During the week, we reported on Coleman donating £5,000 to help Daire Flannagan ,a young Irish Everton fan who is suffering from a serious illness, visit Goodison Park next season.
This is not the first time Coleman has donated some of his earnings to good causes.
He prefers to stay low-key about such deeds but it is always heartening when word gets out of such selfless deeds.
