EX-ENGLAND youth star Ben Cull has died aged 23 following a long battle with cancer.
The former Southampton academy player began battling Ewing's sarcoma at the tender age of 17.
His condition worsened in recent months, prompting him to propose to his long-time girlfriend Daisy Morrison.
But he's tragically lost his battle with the rare bone and soft-tissue disease just weeks after proposing to the love of his life in hospital.
A heartbroken Daisy announced Ben's passing in a brave and emotional Instagram post, writing: "The hardest goodbye.
"Yesterday I lost my whole life, my fiance, my soulmate, my person, my entire world. I always hoped and prayed this day would never, ever come.
"True heartbreak is real, my heart physically hurts and I've never felt pain like this.
"My mum and dad couldn't of picked a better soulmate for me, they adored you, they think of you as a son and are hurting so bad right now.
"They say you go for someone like your father and god you were like dad, two peas in a pod, the best of friends, couldn't of wished for a stronger bromance.
"You fought until the very end my darling, I know you did absolutely everything you could to stay and despite suffering so bad you kept going, that I will be forever grateful for, you never gave up, god just had his own plans.
