It was a day filled with excitement for the homeless kids at various shelters in Kolkata as Indian skipper Virat Kohli paid them a surprise visit dressed as Santa Claus.
Watch @imVKohli dress up as 🎅 and bring a little Christmas cheer to the kids who cheer our sportspersons on, all year long!— Star Sports (@StarSportsIndia) December 20, 2019
This joyful season, let’s remember to spread the love. pic.twitter.com/VF8ltmDZPm
Known for his perfectionist approach while playing for the country, Kohli’s version of Santa was inch-perfect as nobody recognized him before he eventually decided to give away his real identity.
After handing out the Christmas presents, Virat asked whether the children would like to meet Kohli since Spiderman and Superman are on a vacation.
Kohli’s day out with the kids drew praises from his set of fans on social media.

Talented and a Gentleman
