Heartbroken Yarde has further advised people to remain indoors to prevent the spread after being rocked with his latest loss.

A statement posted on Instagram read: “We have now lost my Nanna to this virus. My dad and his mother have passed days apart.

“It’s serious! People are still going out when they don’t need to.

“I know there’s a lot of opinions about Covid-19 and I have mine but I just know opinions aren’t worth risking your life and others.

“Just stay at home.

“RIP Dad 27.3.20. RIP Nana 2.4.20

“My heart really goes out to all the people suffering in different ways.”

Boxing promoter Frank Warren sent his heartfelt condolences with the statement: “We are extremely sad to learn that Anthony Yarde has now lost his Nan to the Coronavirus.

“We can’t begin to imagine what Anthony and his family are going through and our sincere condolences go out to them.

“Please listen to his heartfelt personal plea, stay at home to save lives.”

Yarde revealed how his father had no prior health concerns before contracting the virus.
