Tributes pour in for Arsenal fan who contracted Covid-19 at Euros final, Wembley


Tributes continue to pour in for a “one of a kind” Arsenal supporter “taken too early” after contracting Covid-19 at the Euros final at Wembley.

Danny Bailey, 39, from Hatfield, was fully vaccinated when he supported England from the stands for the Euros final on July 31, MyLondon reports.

The well-known and popular fan, who was on immuno-suppressants, died following a two-week battle with the virus.

One of Danny’s good friends, fellow Gooner Mike Televantou, 32, said the 39-year-old was “one of a kind” with a “very unique personality”.

Mike said Danny was a familiar face at matches and was someone “everyone one knew, who everyone bumped into and had a story about”.

“I always knew he was popular but I don’t think I fully realised the extent until after he passed when all the comments and posts were coming in.”
