Cole Palmer cancelled out Youssef En-Nesyri's opener to take the game to penalties. Nemanja Gudelj missed the final spot-kick after nine successful conversions to gift the Citizens their first Super Cup trophy.

As UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin dished out the gold medals to Pep Guardiola's side, Grealish stopped it momentarily as his attention was drawn to a girl who standing beside the head honcho.

What did Grealish do?

As Sport Bible reports, the girl was visually impaired. Grealish engaged her for a few seconds and refused to budge even when Ceferin appeared to ask him to move it along.

Fans reactions

Fans were moved by the gesture from the England international, with @catchingpigeons saying:

"What a great guy, such a genuine, caring, humble, ordinary bloke who is always prepared to give up his time for folk, whoever they may be and this is no act, this is him just as he is ..but that’s why he’s a top bloke."

@Bartrick_Ian said:

"He's such a good bloke. This is the type of person kids should be looking up to and idolizing."

@AFCTom said:

"Jack Grealish is actually class on and off the pitch."

Compared to their frenzied celebrations after winning the treble, the celebrations were cooled down this time round. They resume Premier League action today evening against Newcastle United.

Grealish's 'healthy bar'

Sports Brief has previously reported that Grealish built a bar in his multi-million dollar house weeks after going on a four-day bender to celebrate Manchester City's historic season.

City became only the second English side in history to complete the elusive treble after beating Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League final.

The 27-year-old has now built a bar in his house, but - contrary to what many think the bar would serve - it will only have healthy drinks such as wheatgrass shots and spirulina smoothies.
