Premier League club Aston Villa have said manager Dean Smith's father Ron has died from COVID-19.

"The Aston Villa Family are saddened to announce that Ron Smith ... has passed away at the age of 79," the club said in a statement https://www.avfc.co.uk/News/2020/05/27/ron-smith-passes-away.

"Ron, who had recently been living in a care home after being diagnosed with dementia six years ago, contracted coronavirus four weeks ago and after a short spell in hospital passed away with his family at his side.

"A lifelong supporter, Ron was a steward at Villa Park for many years and passed on his love of the club down to his children."
