Heartbreaking. His smile was beautifully infectious and he inspired so many people despite his circumstances. RIP little man.

Inspiration, very sad indeed.

Also must be said how good Jermain Defoe was with him, absolute class.

RIP.

He was part of gods plans....

Fuck off. No god will allow such a child to endure what he did. RIP.

I feel for his loved ones and they're grief over a tragic loss of life at no age at all. Dislike the public outcry and over the top display on social media though, there's a blue hearted BL Facebook frame already. Something just never sits right with all this with me, it feels to fake

I agree with this. It's great to give the lad the publicity but it has to be channeled into making a difference for him and his family (which it initially was to be fair) and after that, others that are suffering in similar circumstances. None of this I'm changing my profile picture or posting a status to show support for Bradley and his family which is well meaning in most cases but when you strip it back, nothing more than another attempt at picking up likes and shares even if many don't realise they're doing it. 

That said, I'm still proud of Everton for how much support they put in throughout his struggle.

I hate that with every tragedy.

Having said that, it's still shite that a kid like him had a terminal illness and very sad for his family now that he's passed.

Suffered for most his life, and at such a young age truly tragic. Rest in peace little man.

Bloody hell, seeing all those photos with Jermaine Defoe brings a flipping tear to your eye. Ordinary folk rarely find in it in them to be that kind.

Agree fully with Fairy's post.

Sad story either way though. Must've been horrible to go through for both him and those around him. R.I.P.

Everton will host a charity football match in celebration of Bradley Lowery, the club has announced.

Although a Sunderland fan, six-year-old Bradley made a real impact on Everton when he was a mascot first against them, then for them.

Bradley died on 7 July having been diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was 18 months old.

Everton, which previously donated £200,000 to his appeal, will host a celebrity match on 3 September.

'Imp with biggest heart'

Bradley's mother Gemma said the support the family had received was "fantastic".

Evertonians formed a special bond with the youngster, initially during Everton's match at Sunderland in September 2016 and then when he was a guest at Goodison Park for two matches in January and February this year.

Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright said: "I didn't know him for long but from the second he walked out onto the pitch with his beloved Sunderland against us, I felt an overwhelming need to support him.

"He was the loveliest lad - still an imp, but with the biggest heart."

Funds are being raised for the Bradley Lowery Foundation, a charity set up by his family which aims to help other families with children with cancer.
