Alongside the video clip, he posted: ‘When my lad & his cousins challenge Adama to a race!! What a down to earth top man!’
Traore doesn’t reach top speed in the footrace, but the youngsters are clearly having fun and can be heard shouting, ‘Yes Adama! Yes Adama!’ as they try to keep up with the 26-year-old star.
Traore’s actions were praised by many on social media – including Wolves supporters who are having a trying time this season.
‘With all the sh** that’s going on at the minute, this is the wholesome content you love to see Doesn’t take much to make someone’s year – brilliant from Adama. The pure joy in the kids voice – that’s the connection that’s sorely missing,’ said one Twitter user.
‘Fair play to Adama, what a great thing to do, that’s a memory right there,’ commented another.
‘This is pure joy. They’ll never forget this,’ said a third.
