Terminally ill five-year-old Bradley Lowery is to be given honorary 41st place in the racecard for the Grand National at Aintree on Saturday.

The young Sunderland fan was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2013, and has won widespread admiration for the way he has dealt with the cancer.

“We’re thrilled to be coming to Aintree and really appreciate everything everyone is doing for Bradley and us,” said his mother Gemma.
