Tragic news has surfaced that Rio Ferdinand’s mum Janice St Fort has passed away at just 58 years old after losing her battle with cancer.
This earth shattering news comes just two years after his wife Rebecca also died from breast cancer. Earlier this year in a heartfelt documentary on the BBC Being Mum and Dad we really got to see what a rock his mum had been for him in helping him deal with the loss of his wife.
The family have released a statement saying, “Our mum was the centre and the heart of our family and has supported us all through many difficult times, always with a smile on her face”.
Our prayers and thoughts are with the family in these trying times.
