Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse invited local children into his house for a Christmas party last night.
The young fans were greeted by the 30-year-old in a black and white Santa costume, before he handed out presents and served cakes.
"I'd like to wish all of the Newcastle fans a merry Christmas and all the best for 2016," The Chronicle quotes Cisse as saying.
"It is important to say thank you for their support throughout the year and this was a way of showing that. I like to work hard for the fans and show them that I care."
The frontman has found the net twice from his eight starts this season.
