Tragedy hits Michail Antonio

Hammer Michail Antonio has taken to social media to share a heartfelt message that his father has passed away after a long illness.

His death is not related to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Taking on his personal Instagram story, Antonio said: “Over the last 7 years, my dad has been ill.

In and out of hospital and now his life has come to its end.

“I’ve been getting messages and I’ve been getting phone calls so I just want to put this out and say I’m not going to be responding to people much or posting anything on Instagram until I feel like I’m ready to again.

“I want all of you to put my family in my prayers.”
