Tuesday may have been a terrible day for Chelsea FC. It was tragic for a young supporter.
A flock of Blues fans, on their way to the Stadio Olympico in Rome for Tuesday's Champions League tie against AS Roma, were caught in a torrential thunderstorm. A 13-year-old boy was killed when a tree in which he took shelter under was struck by lightning.
He was rushed to a hospital, but paramedics were unable to save him.
Thoughts here at The Offside go out to friends and family of the boy.
