Star Footballer Van Damme Dies At 28

Belgian footballer Miguel van Damme has died at the age of 28 following a long battle with leukaemia.

Van Damme’s Belgian top-flight club, Cercle Brugge, said “words are not enough to describe what we feel” following the news on Tuesday.

The goalkeeper was first diagnosed with the disease over five years ago.

“It is with great sadness we report that our friend and team-mate Van Damme has fought his long and uneven battle against leukaemia,” the club said.

“Miguel, your perseverance and strength to go for it [again] over and over, setback after setback, was admirable.

“You are an example of positivism, persistence and fighting spirit. A source of inspiration for everyone who fights. Forever in our green-black heart, #16.”
