‘He was watching the football in his local pub surrounded by family and friends when he suddenly collapsed.
‘The emergency services worked tirelessly for three hours to save him but our boy Charlie sadly passed away.
‘Charlie had just turned 29 years old and was a passionate supporter of his club and country – Chelsea and England.
‘This poignant moment in British history that will be remembered by all but for all of Charlie’s family and friends this will be the most devastating time of their lives.
‘As you support and celebrate England through their journey at the Euro’s 2021 please raise a glass to our Charlie.
‘With a blue heart and the three lions on his chest. R.I.P Charlie Naughton. Keep the blue flag flying high. 28/05/1992 – 29/06/2021.’
The tribute was shared by Mr Naughton’s sister Dollie, who called for people to turn Facebook blue in his memory.
