West Ham United legend Carlton Cole scored many goals for the Claret and Blue while playing in London, but in his post-WHU life, he has been lighting Twitter on fire on a regular basis. So it should come as no surprise that on Valentine’s Day, he would go the extra mile for all of his fans.

Yes, that’s Cole dressed up as Superman with what appears to be a dozen white roses.

Yes, he got almost 1,600 likes for that.

Yes, he’s made every West Ham fan’s Valentine’s Day plans seem pedestrian in comparison. Of course he has, he’s Carlton Cole.

While news of a reunion with ex-teammate Kevin Nolan at Notts County was premature, perhaps he will be continuing to spread his love on a football pitch in the near future. We can all hope.
