Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe says battling youngster Bradley Lowery is in his prayers every night after making an emotional hospital visit. Brave Bradley, who has terminal cancer neuroblastoma, was treated to a visit from Sunderland players at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary, where the youngster is undergoing pioneering antibody treatment to prolong his life.

Bradley Lowery, five, fell asleep cuddling his hero Defoe and was thrilled to see club captain John O'Shea, goalkeeper Vito Mannone and midfielder Seb Larsson visit him in hospital on Thursday. Bradley's family shared photos of the hospital visit on social media with their many well-wishers who have supported his battle with the rare cancer neuroblastoma. An emotional Defoe spoke about his visit to the hospital when he was presented with the North East Football Writers' Player of the Year award, at Ramside Hall, in Durham.

Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe has told talkSPORT he thrives off the pressure of being the club’s best hope of Premier League survival.
