Chelsea to commemorate famous Blues supporter’s death before match against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea will remember comedian and season ticket holder Sean Lock with a minute’s applause at their next home game after he died aged 58.

The stand-up star, whose fame spread via TV shows QI and 8 Out of 10 Cats, passed away from cancer last Wednesday.

The Blues have agreed to commemorate his death before their Premier League match with Aston Villa on September 11.

The idea was proposed by fellow British comic Omid Djalili, who tweeted to ask Chelsea if a tribute was possible.
