Coronavirus claims the life of Charlton supporter, 38, who attended 1,076 consecutive games

Championship club, Charlton Athletic, paid tribute on Thursday to one of their most loyal supporters, who has died from the coronavirus.

According to The Sun, Seb Lewis was just 38 years of age and had attended an incredible 1,076 consecutive matches before his death.

Upon learning of the news, the official Charlton Athletic Twitter account posted news of his passing.

His astonishing dedication to the south London club saw him follow them up and down the country and meant that he hadn’t missed a match, home or away, since February 1998.

Once news of his death began to spread, the club, as well as current and former players, took to social media to express their sorrow.

The Sun also report that the 38-year-old had only recently posted a video of himself on social media, whilst in hospital and hooked up to an oxygen mask, but sadly, despite the best efforts of the NHS, it wasn’t enough.
