    Football fan Bradley Lowery, who touched the football world with his bravery and enthusiasm despite suffering from an incurable form of cancer, has passed away at the age of six.

    Bradley, who was a fan of English club Sunderland, had been battling neuroblastoma and had become unresponsive while in hospital on Wednesday.

    “My brave boy has went with the angels today 07/07/17 at 13:35, in mammy and daddies arms surrounded by his family,” Bradley’s mother Gemma wrote in a Facebook post. 

    “He was our little superhero and put the biggest fight up but he was needed else where. There are no words to describe how heart broken we are.

    “Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words. Sleep tight baby boy and fly high with them angels.”

    During his treatment, Bradley had struck up a particularly close relationship with former Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe, who broke down in tears when asked about the boy in a press conference on Wednesday.  

    Sunderland released a statement following the news, in which they extended their “love and support” to Bradley’s family including his parents, Gemma and Carl, and his brother Kieran.
