Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) star Conor McGregor has been left heartbroken after his aunt died of suspected coronavirus.
McGregor posted a heartfelt tribute to his late relative as he vented his anger on the coronavirus on social media.
He wrote on Instagram: “I was to announce to the world my @properwhiskey donation to @tunneltotowers.
“A great day! A proud day, I brought my family with me to the studio.
“Sitting in the chair about to beam live to all the U.S morning talk shows, I get a phone call telling me that my lovely little auntie Anne had passed away.
“I couldn’t go live anymore. My poor little friendly loving auntie. My mother’s sister. This stupid f**king virus. What the f**k is happening.
“I took my family to Bull Island. Looked out at the sea. Took a deep breath. Thank f**k! Lord thank you.
“Stay tight people! We are all we got. Rest in Peace Anne Moore I love you.”
Earlier in the post, McGregor said: “Ireland you amazing, amazing country. I believe we have this virus contained.
“And through this containment, we actually may have gone and contained them all.
“The good habits we will have now gained from this wild coronavirus attack will see us too strong in future.
“Hand hygiene. Touching of own face hygiene. Consistent thorough cleaning of handled areas hygiene.
“What we should really be all doing anyway. I have always been on with my hand hygiene. But not enough.
“If I think of all the people approaching to shake hands and what not. I often get people say to me please I don’t want a picture, just let me shake your hand.
“And I’m like yes friend thank you. As it’s more efficient than taking a full picture. But it’s too careless. And too frequent.
“Touching my own hand to my face as well. Too unaware of the frequency I’d do it. Until now.
“I’d train my ass off, to the point of low immunity. It’s inevitable with the intensity of the training.
“The immune system will be tested. I would float around in this manner, and always end up catching little colds and flus.
“I feel bullet proof right now though! I’m switched on like a motherf—ker now.
“Stay vigilant on our personal hygiene people. And our personal space.
“God speed to us all. We are not there yet but we are well on our way.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
