Toby Nye: Leeds United superfan dies days after sixth birthday

The family of Toby Nye say they are more than heartbroken following his death just days after his sixth birthday.

Leeds United superfan Toby touched the hearts of thousands as he fought against a rare form of cancer.

He also developed a special bond with United, with the club helping raise £200,000 for his treatment last year.

In a statement last night, Toby's family said Toby 'looks at peace now & free from everything that was thrown at our poor baby boy'.

Leeds United paid tribute with the words: The memories will live forever. There were also tributes on social media from club owner Andrea Radrizzani and skipper Liam Cooper.
