    Captain Sir Tom Moore has died with coronavirus.

    The 100-year-old raised almost £33m for NHS charities by walking laps of his garden.

    The Queen led tributes to Capt Sir Tom, “recognising the inspiration he provided for the whole nation and others across the world”.

    His daughters said they “shared laughter and tears” with their father in their final few hours together.

    Announcing his death, Hannah Ingram-Moore and Lucy Teixeira said the last year of their father’s life had been “nothing short of remarkable”.

    He tested positive for Covid-19 last week. His family said due to other medication he was receiving for pneumonia, he was unable to be vaccinated.
