Jamaica's superstar cricketer Chris Gayle, is back in the media but this time for a way less controversial reason.

Gayle has been on an Instagram petition helping to source funds to aid with a student's leukaemia treatment. 

The student, Lee-Anna Walker is a fifth form student of St Hugh's High School who was diagnosed with Leukaemia and is in need of funds to assist with her bone marrow transplant.

The treatment will cost £35,000.

Gayle is not just lobbying for the worthy cause, he is making his own contribution.

"Well, I actually get to meet Lee-Anna Walker not too long ago in Triple Century and I'm donating USD 20,000 towards her treatment," Gayle wrote.

"For those who willing to assist here's the details. Bank Name: Victoria Mutual Building Society. Bank Address: 10 Duke Street, Kingston. Bank Swift Code: VMBSJMK1. BOJ Account No: 7005. For further credit to: VMBS Customer Name Antoinette Francis. VMBS Acct number 401183926. #PrayersMoveMountains," the post continued.

One can only hope that Gayle's act of kindness will be imitated by some of his near 600 thousand followers on Instagram.
