A baby with Down Syndrome who won the hearts of millions has passed away in his mother’s arms.

Colton Murray touched the lives of thousands of people and quickly became an ambassador for children with Down Syndrome in his short life.

But after a courageous battle with the syndrome, Colton died on Saturday morning at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis aged 23-months-old.

His mother, Kim Murray, wrote on his Facebook page called ‘ColtonStrong’. She said: ‘Thank you all so so much for praying for our little boy. Last Christmas morning when he crashed, I asked for a miracle, and I got one. ‘Then he continued to defy the odds for so long. We are so so very proud of him. His strength was amazing.’

She added that his Facebook page would remain up as a place to share his memories. Colton’s parents discovered that he had Down Syndrome shortly after his birth in December 2015, and also found out he had one, instead of two, heart ventricles.

He underwent open-heart surgery but this not help his condition.

According to Murrary’s Facebook post, Colton had to receive an emergency breathing tube before his death.

Colton quickly became an inspiration to many and appeared in the National Down Syndrome Society’s annual Times Square video presentation that kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October.

He also appeared in ‘Meet Colton,’ a Riley Children’s Hospital social media video. A gathering will be held on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning at Maryland Community Church in memory of Colton. The Murray family has asked that contributions be made to the Riley Children’s Foundation instead of flowers.

Sarri, who joined the Blues from Napoli in July 2018, led them to third in the Premier League and won the Europa League in his one season in charge.

It is understood compensation in excess of £5m has been agreed between the two clubs for the 60-year-old.

Sarri will replace fellow Italian Massimiliano Allegri, who left Juventus at the end of last season.

“In talks we had following the Europa League final, Maurizio made it clear how strongly he desired to return to his native country, explaining that his reasons for wanting to return to work in Italy were significant,” said Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia.

“He also believed it important to be nearer his family, and for the well-being of his elderly parents he felt he needed to live closer to them at this point.”

Sarri signed a three-year deal last July but now becomes the ninth full-time manager to leave Chelsea under Roman Abramovich, who bought the club in 2003.

Derby boss and former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has been linked with taking over from Sarri but the Blues are yet to make contact with the Rams.

The Championship club are keen to extend Lampard’s deal – which has two years left – and have opened talks with the 40-year-old.

Chelsea are unable to sign any players after being given a two-window transfer ban by world governing body Fifa – a decision they are appealing against at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Hong kong: two million protesters demand Lam to resign.

Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam apologized to its people on Sunday as an estimated 1 million-plus black-clad protesters insisted that she resign over her handling of a bill that would allow citizens to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Organizers said almost 2 million turned out on Sunday to demand that chief executive Lam step down in what is becoming the most significant challenge to China’s relationship with the territory since it was handed back by Britain 22 years ago.

Sunday’s demonstration came in spite of Lam indefinitely delaying – though not withdrawing – the bill on Saturday in a dramatic climbdown that threw into question her ability to continue to lead the city.

On Sunday, she apologized for the way the government had handled the draft law, which had been scheduled for debate last Wednesday, but gave no further insight into its fate.

Organizers pressed ahead with the protest to demand the bill’s full withdrawal, as well as to mark their anger at the way police handled a demonstration against it on Wednesday, when more than 70 people were injured by rubber bullets and tear gas.

Some of Sunday’s marchers held signs saying, “Do not shoot, we are HongKonger.”

Police said the demonstration reached 338,000 at its peak. Organizers and police have routinely produced vastly different estimates at recent demonstrations.

Organizers estimated a protest the week before drew 1 million while police said 240,000.

“It’s much bigger today. Many more people,” said one protester who gave her name as Ms Wong. “I came today because of what happened on Wednesday, with the police violence.”

Loud cheers rang out when activists called through loud hailers for Lam’s resignation and the cry “step down” echoed through the streets.

“(An) apology is not enough,” said demonstrator Victor Li, 19.
