Chris Eubank Jr shared a moving tribute to his brother Sebastian on his 30th birthday, nine days after he died from a heart attack while swimming in Dubai.

Sebastian lived in the UAE with his wife Salma and newborn son Raheem, and worked as a personal trainer.

He was the third-oldest of boxing legend Chris Eubank Sr’s five children. Following the funeral, Eubank Sr said Sebastian ‘left a legacy that his son will be proud of’.

Eubank Jr took to social media on Sunday for the first time since posting a heartbreaking tribute to his younger brother on 10 July.

He shared two pictures, the first of himself sat beside a mural painted in tribute to Sebastian carrying the simple message ‘RIP Sebastian Eubank 91-21’, with several candles placed in front of it.

Eubank Jr’s previous posts were a raw account of his feelings at losing his brother, saying ‘I haven’t cried since I was 12’ and vowing to ‘treat your newborn son like my own’. 

Eubank Sr also said the family were ‘overwhelmed and profoundly grateful for the love and support we continue to receive’.
