Derby County FC has handed a lifetime ban to a fan who posted “abusive” tweets about the death of Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp’s son.
The boy, Luey Jacob, was endure with his intestines outside his body – known as gastroschisis – and succumbed simply two days after his birth in 2011.
Derby County bureaucrats tracked down the fan and interviewed him.
He has since deleted the tweets and the club said he had apologised to them for what he did.

The fan, called Jordan Byrne on Twitter, retweeted a message from the official Derby County Twitter feed about Sharp scoring a aim, but added the words “Dead son”.
A friend then asked him: “Everything okay at home Bernie? x”
