Thousands of football fans paid tribute to a teen who died in his sleep.

A West Ham United game paused as the 60,000 West Ham United and Leicester City fans stood and clapped to remember Freddie Felton, 14, who died.

His emotional family encouraged fellow Hammers fans to join them as they paid tribute to him during the 14th minute of the Premier League match yesterday.

The Brentwood teenager was found unresponsive by his parents on February 19 this year when they went to wake him up.

A number of emergency services attended the house in Vernon Crescent, including an air ambulance, but he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

To commemorate Freddie, West Ham fans were asked to stand up and join a minute of applause in his memory.
