Rangers midfielder sends touching tribute to superfan coronavirus victim

Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has left a touching tribute to a Charlton Athletic superfan who has tragically died of the coronavirus.

Seb Lewis, 38, passed away this week after contracting the deadly virus and it is a massive blow to the Valley club and their supporters.

Having previously turned out for the now-Championship side, Aribo was clearly moved by the passing of a supporter whose commitment to the cause helped etch him into the fabric of the club.

In a revealing thread on Twitter, the London club go into great detail about the loyalty, passion and cult status of the legendary Addicks fan.

Described as “the heart and soul of the Charlton family”, Seb prided himself on the fact he never missed a single game.

The superfan had attended every single match since February 1998, an incredible record of 1076 consecutive fixtures.

During that period Seb has seen Charlton go through multiple ups and downs, from the Premier League to English League One.

Seb’s commitment to Charlton was special and this heartfelt response from the Charlton family is indicative of the kind standing Seb held around the club.

Supporters of his ilk would be more than welcome at Ibrox and Rangers fans everywhere will send their best wishes to Charlton and their supporters in the wake of Seb’s passing.

It was also a nice touch from Joe Aribo to send a message of support on Twitter given his historic attachment to Charlton.
