Super Eagles legend John Obi Mikel has shown that he is more than a football star after sharing a picture of himself carrying his twin to bed.
The Nigerian midfielder practically walked out of his contract with Turkish football side Trabzonspor just to be with his family during this coronavirus period.
Mikel was said to have criticised the country's FA for refusing to suspend the league despite the ravaging effect of the pandemic.

The former Chelsea star only joined the club last summer shortly after helping the three-time African champions win bronze medal at the 2019 edition of the AFCON championship.
While sharing the post on his official Instagram page, he accompanied it with a caption that says: "At the end of the day, that’s all that matters."
However, a few clubs have shown interest in the former Nigerian captain but Brazilian side Botafogo appear to be the most serious of them all.
They have made contact with the player shortly before the total lockdown was initiated almost everywhere in the world but they are yet to reach an agreement.
The 33-year-old announced his retirement from national team assignment last year after scoring six goals in 91 games in 14 years.
Legit.ng earlier reported that John Obi Mikel clocked 33 on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 and his partner Olga Diyachenko gave him a pleasant surprise while observing their stay at home order.
The former Trabzonspor midfielder who recently terminated his contract with the Turkish club was quick to appreciate the gesture from his partner.
The father of twin daughters took to his Instagram handle to thank Olga for organizing a surprise birthday celebration for him.
