The emotion is still alive this Sunday after the announcement of the death of Philousports, a benevolent personality of social networks.
Tributes are still flowing to the social network Twitter, of which he was a figure.
Several initiatives took place during the evening and morning to pay him a final tribute.
Among these, the launch of a petition for the organization of a minute of silence during the France - Portugal match of Euro 2020.
“Philou was an unconditional lover of sport and the French football team.
He deserves in the name of the hope that he gave to all the people who, like him, fight against the disease, a minute of silence during the match France - Portugal, specifies the text posted on the site Change.
“He had become an icon on Twitter under the pseudonym Philousports,” adds the creator of the petition.
