Six-year-old Bradley Lowery, whose plight touched the lives of many people, has died after a long illness.

The Sunderland fan was diagnosed with neuroblastoma – a rare type of cancer – when he was 18 months old.

Bradley went on to be the club’s mascot and became “best mates” with his hero, striker Jermain Defoe… More at The BBC.

For those of you outside the UK, Bradley brought rivals football fans together, inspired millions of people and brought a tear to many an eye yesterday when the news was announced.

It is one of the most sorrowful questions we can ask ourselves; why do children have to die?
