Brave young Sunderland fan who inspired world sadly passes away after battle with cancer

Tributes have been pouring in from the footballing world for Bradley Lowery, who passed away today after a long battle with cancer.

The six-year-old Sunderland fan had neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer, diagnosed when he was 18 months old.

But he fought the illness and, as a mascot for Sunderland's Premier League match with Everton last September, became an inspiration for people round the world.

He also struck up a close friendship with his favourite player Jermain Defoe, who posted a moving message on Saturday.

Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton were among the sides to send messages of condolence.
