Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY JOHN KELLY

ITAL­IAN foot­ball fans paid their own mov­ing trib­ute to Bradley Low­ery on the day of the boy’s fu­neral.

At Roma’s friendly with FC Slo­vacko, fans un­veiled a ban­ner read­ing “RIP Pic­colo (litt­tle) Bradley”.

The six-year-old mas­cot for Sun­der­land, Ever­ton and Eng­land died of neu­rob­las­toma, a rare cancer of the ner­vous sys­tem.

He had struck up a re­mark­able friend­ship with foot­baller Jer­main De­foe, 34, who was at the fu­neral on Fri­day.

Yes­ter­day, Sun­der­land and St John­stone fans paid their re­spects at a friendly.

Sun­der­land tweeted: “Ev­ery­one is on their feet in Mcdiarmid Park with a rous­ing ap­plause held to re­mem­ber @Bradleysfight. A nice touch from @St_ John­stone_fc.”
