Lebron James.

With no father, no education, no training, and very few role models, they handed this young, dirt poor kid $420,000 per week, at the age of 18!
He married his high school sweetheart, was never arrested, never used drugs, never humiliated his spouse with side chick stories. No outside babies.
Never in the news with so much as a parking ticket. Excellent father. Heavily involved with his kid's activities. Greatest player on the PLANET in the game today!
15 years later. Same dude. Same maturity. Same chick. Same family. Reputation intact. Now earning close to $2 million per week. Has sent 1100+ kids to college fully paid for.

He was able to recover from the loss of both legs and start a new career as a Paralympic athlete. An example for everyone...

For me, I will have to say Jamie Vardy , especially because I am a Leicester fan. This man is a football (soccer) player and his pace terrifies defenders. He runs in behind defenders and takes a lot of his chances. He is a great finisher and his abilities made me watch football more.

Manny Pacquiao.

For me, he’s a hero of our modern world, his achievement are all the result of his hard work and real blood sweat. Started as nothing and ended to be somebody to look up. He’s one of the people to be a good example, he’s not perfect but wants to achieve something. His life started what we consider as a mess but he used that as an inspiration to strive on what he wants to be and inspires us all through hard work.Life is not easy for our people champ, he even dropped out of high school due to financial problems. Left their home at the age of 14 to try his luck in boxing which he became successful and earned the respect all over the world. But I’m glad for his extraordinary action since he took the high school equivalency exam to be eligible for college. He even enrolled in several certificate courses in the field he’s now engaged, which is in politics. Even though he achieved and earn a lot due to his boxing profession and for his family, still he works and continuously learning to serve and help our people. He even develop his self to be presentable in politics and studied English.A modern hero as he make us all Filipino unite at least in one event, his every Fight. Sometimes a hero doesn’t need to sacrifice his life to all the people for the common good. To be an inspiration and a good example of good deeds are already a modern hero. On all the fight of Manny he make us feel the spirit of doing the best in every task, whether it became successful or not.

Virat Kohli who is currently the Indian Cricket Team Captain for all the formats. Well, if I start writing all the reasons, it could take a book but I will mention some of the major ones -
1. Nation comes first. Anything and everything for the team. I have never seen him playing for himself at any situation of the game and the way he celebrates other teammates success is a treat to watch.
2. Consistency. His batting average eclipses anyone of his peers whether it is for test, ODI, or T20.
3. Technique. He never plays any risky shots even if the asking rate is higher. He can hit you fours and sixes at his will without resorting to any ugly looking shots.
4. Successful chasing. He can be attributed to the one who changed the face of Indian side which before was always under pressure when chasing big scores.
5. Fitness. Never stayed out of match due to injury and arguably is the fittest member of the team.
