He mentioned in that presser that he'd been told by the family it was 'a matter of days' so I think that's what choked him up so much.
I suppose knowing it was inevitable still doesn't prepare you for when it actually happens, thoughts to his family and JD.
RIP little fella.
A true fighter and a wonderful example to anybody who finds themselves in a similar life threatening situation. He may not have come through his terrible ordeal but he dealt with it by showing a courage far beyond his early years. He has touched the hearts of people from all walks of life and will always be remembered in the footballing world as a supporter beyond compare.
Sleep well little man....you are not forgotten.
