Chris Eubank Jr has taken to Twitter to pay tribute to his late brother, Sebastian, after the boxer died in Dubai.

Posting on the social media app, he wrote: "Rest easy little brother. I love you & you will be missed always @SebEubank."

Sebastian's death came as a shock on Friday evening after it emerged he was found dead on a beach days before his 30th birthday.

Report suggest Sebastian drowned at his home.

Nicknamed the Alka Lion, the 29-year-old followed his dad and older brother Chris Jr into the sporing world by also becoming a boxer.

Speaking on his son's heartbreaking death, boxing icon Eubank Snr said: “Never did I ever imagine I would write these words or experience the feeling I now have at the loss of my son.

"My family and I are devastated to hear of the death of Sebastian just days before what would have been his 30th birthday.

"As well as being a personal trainer and professional boxer, Sebastian was also a deep thinker who liked to challenge accepted wisdom.

"He was loved and respected by all who knew him and will be forever in the thoughts of friends and family. As a family we now kindly ask to be given space and privacy to celebrate his life and remember the son, the brother, the husband, the friend.”
