Captain Sir Tom Moore dies aged 100

Published on February 2, 2021 by

Captain Tom Moore has died at the age of 100 after a battle with Covid and pneumonia.

The veteran inspired a nation when he raised more than £32 million for the NHS, walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday during the first national lockdown last April.

He was admitted to Bedford Hospital on Sunday having been treated for “a few weeks” for pneumonia at home and Captain Tom – as he has become universally known – contracted coronavirus some time in mid-January.

Due to the medication he was on for pneumonia, it was not possible for him to receive a Covid jab.

On Monday night, his family gathered at his bedside.
