Kevin Campbell's son Tyrese pays emotional tribute to his late father after the former Arsenal and Everton striker passed away aged 54

Kevin Campbell's son, Tyrese, has offered a touching tribute on social media following the tragic news of his father's passing.

The former Everton and Arsenal striker passed away on Saturday morning at the age of 54, after falling ill with reports earlier this month suggesting that he had been admitted to hospital.

Saturday's news was naturally greeted with an outpouring of emotion and love towards Campbell from his former clubs and close friends in football, namely Ian Wright.

Now Campbell's son Tyrese, himself a fellow professional footballer has taken to social media to offer a few of his own words at this understandably extremely difficult time for his family.
