Sir Richard Branson’s mother Eva has died from coronavirus at the age of 96, he has revealed.
The Virgin boss took to Twitter to announce her death with a heartfelt post.
He wrote: ‘I’m sorry to share that, sadly like a lot of people’s mums and dads right now in these days of Covid, my mum Eve has also passed away. Rather than mourn her loss, I wanted to celebrate her wonderful life & the joy she brought to so many.’
Branson, 70, also published a tribute on his company website where he praised his mother as a ‘wonderful’ woman who taught him the value of hard work.
He added that his sister Vanessa and nephew Louis stayed by her side before her death and she entertained them and her nurses with ‘tales from her life and much laughter over glasses of whisky’.
