Coventry City Football Club would like to send its condolences to the family of Lifelong Sky Blue fan Richard Bunt, who sadly passed away last week...

The 33-year old lost his life in a tragic accident whilst on holiday with family and friends in Krakow, Poland.

It is understood that Leamington-born Mr Bunt fell from his vehicle whilst being transported to their accomodation.

Richard was one of more than 40,000 Coventry City fans at Wembley Stadium for the Checkatrade Trophy Final victory against Oxford United, and a regular at many Sky Blue fixtures.

A statement from the family of Richard said: "It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of our wonderful son, Richard, who died on Tuesday, June 13 after a tragic accident in Krakow, Poland.

"He brought so much happiness to our lives and was a loving husband, caring son and brother, friend and colleague.

"Richard affected so many lives with his love, his brilliant humour and everyday acts of kindness. We take great strength from knowing that his final gift was his greatest of all – donating his organs to save six people – giving other families so much joy and hope.

"He will always be treasured by us and by everyone who knew him and we are immensely proud of the man he was.

"We would like to thank all the kind people who helped and prayed for Richard and also thank our family and friends around the world.

"We ask that our family’s privacy is respected at this time."
