Captain Sir Tom Moore has died at the age of 100 from coronavirus. In April 2020 the then 99-year-old war veteran accepted a family challenge to raise £1,000 for health service charities by walking 100 lengths of his garden before his 100th birthday at the end of that month. By the time he closed his fundraising page at midnight on his 100th birthday, Captain Sir Tom had raised more than £32m from more than one-and-a-half-million global donors. He was taken to Bedford Hospital after requiring help with his breathing on Sunday. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has described Captain Sir Tom Moore as a "hero in the truest sense of the word".
