Chris Eubank Jnr has posted a heartbreaking tribute to his brother Sebastian after he was found dead near his home in Dubai days before his 30th birthday.
Sebastian, the third oldest of Chris Eubank Snr’s five children, was found dead on a beach in the UAE where he lived with wife Salma and son Raheem.
“I haven’t cried since I was 12 years old… yesterday I cried the whole day,” said Chris Eubank Jnr.
“I’m sorry I wasn’t there to watch your back like a big brother’s supposed to. Can’t believe you’re really gone man but you’ll always be in my heart, mind and spirit.
“Now your legacy will live on through your beautiful new born son amd I will treat him like my own. Watch over us until we meet again young lion.
“And to everyone out there reading this right now DON’T take ANY of your loved ones for granted. See them, speak to them, check up on them as much as you possibly can because you just never know if that one time will be the last time. Love you bro.”
Eubank Snr said he and his family were “devastated” to hear of his son’s death. Sebastian had followed his father’s footsteps and become a professional boxer.
In a statement, Eubank Snr said: "Sebastian grew up in Hove in England but in the last few years made his life in Dubai where he had a wide circle of friends and was a leader in the adoption of a healthy lifestyle and of alternative therapies.
"As well as being a personal trainer and professional boxer, Sebastian was also a deep thinker who liked to challenge accepted wisdom.
"He was loved and respected by all who knew him and will be forever in the thoughts of friends and family. As a family we now kindly ask to be given space and privacy to celebrate his life and remember the son, the brother, the husband, the friend."
