Jake Livermore's celebration after scoring the opening goal for Hull in their Premier League match with Cardiff was a pretty angry one, and he ended up kicking a camera positioned behind the goal.

The photographer, Richard Heathcote, was less than happy, unsurprisingly, calling out the player on Twitter about it after the match in the hope of some compensation.

Fortunately, however, we live in the age of social media—and Livermore got in touch with Heathcote to confirm not only that he'd make the necessary arrangements to have the camera fixed, but he'd also make a donation for the same amount to a charitable cause.
