Mesut Ozil won the 2014 World Cup with Germany in Brazil.
But his lasting legacy in the country may go well beyond what he did on the pitch during Germany's triumphant run.
One year later, Ozil is continuing his pledge with another wonderful gesture for youth in need.
He'll pay for the surgeries of 11 more Brazilian children, "Ozil's 11," to take place in the fall in Coroata through the children's aid programme, BigShoe.
"Even one year after we won the World Cup, I want to continue to leave a positive mark in Brazil by financing 11 more children's operations," Ozil told the German national team's official website. "For me it's very important that I carry on providing help for the children of Brazil."
Well done, Mesut.
