Six-year-old cancer sufferer Bradley Lowery, the Sunderland mascot who developed a friendship with Jermaine Defoe, has died.
“My brave boy has went with the angels today… in mammy and daddies arms surrounded by his family,” a Facebook post said.
“He was our little superhero and put the biggest fight up but he was needed elsewhere. There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words. Sleep tight baby boy and fly high with them angels.”
