Firstly I have to state, I am a Londoner and yes I was born here …
It’s bad to think when a sports star has their limelight that something so tragic can happen during that time. Arsenal-Wales football midfielder Aaron Ramsey has this internet tag that when he scores a goal, a celebrity or famous person will unfortunately pass to their death. Arsenal celebrated their 2nd trophy in almost a decade on Sunday, beating English champions Manchester City comfortably 3-0. England star Ramsey was on the scoresheet and sadly a day later, comedian actor Robin Williams was found dead in his home in America. This theory has dated back since 2011. I know it sounds ludicrous right?
