British wrestling champion Adrian McCallum dies at 36 after haunting final tweet


British wrestler Lionheart today died aged 36 – hours after posting a haunting message online.

The world heavyweight champion said: “One day you will eat your last meal, you will hug your friend for the last time”.

His message – a direct quote from Ricky Gervais’ hit Netflix comedy After Life – was posted on Twitter this morning.

Lionheart, whose real name was Adrian McCallum, wrote: “One day you will eat your last meal, you will smell your last flower, you will hug your friend for the last time. You might not know it’s the last time, that’s why you must do everything you love with passion.”

The famous line was said by Gervais’ character, Tony Johnson, who is mourning the death of his wife.

Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW) announced the tragic news on their official page tonight.

He was the wrestling firm’s current world heavyweight champion.

Lionheart, from Ayr, Scotland, had been a top wrestler for the last 10 years.

He appeared on a host of popular shows including WWE and TNA and was one of the UK’s best known wrestlers.

Fellows wrestlers paid tribute to the star on Wednesday night.
