Jermain Defoe paid his respects to Bradley Lowery

Well-wishers dressed in football T-shirts as they said a final goodbye to the six year old, after he lost his brave battle with cancer.

He was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was just a baby, and sadly lost his fight against the condition earlier this month.

The little one’s red and white coffin arrived at the church in a horse-drawn carriage, with a queue of mourners dressed as superheroes saluting his body as he passed. Bradley’s family confirmed his death in a heartbreaking message, explaining he "went with the angels" on July 7.

They later shared an open invitation to the service, after the country got behind his battle with his condition.
A message posted on the Bradley Lowery's Fight Against Neuroblastoma Facebook page, on July 11, read: "Bradley's funeral will be held on Friday 14th of July, starting 11:15 at: St. Josephs R.C Church, Coast road, Blackhall Colliery, TS27 4HW.

"This is open to everyone who would like to come and celebrate Bradley's life and pay their respects to show him how much he was loved.

"Not everyone will fit in the church but they are having speakers for people to listen to the service outside, and people can line the streets if they wish to do so.

"They will then be having an invite-only private ceremony at a crematorium. The family have requested for no media to be there unless they are not working, and are attending to pay their respects."

"You can wear what ever you want for the funeral but the family and friends have chosen the theme cancer has no colours. So they are wearing football tops – it doesn't matter what team or colour.
