Raheem Sterling, the Liverpool player, is the worst person on the planet. We know this because the Daily Star  features him on its Page 5. Pictured smiling and giving the thumbs up, the 20-year-old Liverpool and England player is placed alongside a photograph of Jimmy Guichard, also 20.

Jimmy is seen “dying in hospital”.

It is an utterly grim image. Looking at it feels invasive. But the photograph comes with the blessing of Jimmy’s mother, Karen, whose views are summed up in the headline:

“Kops must drop Sterling, urges tragic mum”

Jimmy died in 2013. That’s when the photographs of his dire condition were released. Back then Karen “explained how Jimmy Guichard died after taking a synthetic cannabis”.

The Daily Mail reported:

Keen sportsman Jimmy Guichard, 20, suffered a heart attack and severe brain damage within hours of taking one of the herbal substances. His mother Karen Audino said he was found unconscious next to an empty plastic bag from controversial legal high shop UK Skunkworks.

And in today’s Daily Star’s exclusive “, the paper writes:

Keen sportsman Jimmy… suffered a heart attack and severe brain damage within hours of taking one of the herbal substances….he was found unconscious next to an empty plastic bag from controversial legal high shop UK Skunkworks.

It is worth noting that “according to the coroner’s report, there were no traces of alcohol or illegal drugs including cannabis, cocaine, morphine or acid in his system that could have caused his death.”

There was no inquest into his death.

But Karen suspects the legal high killed her son. She said:

“Jimmy experienced severe hypertension which caused his heart attack, but why that happened we don’t know. I believe whatever he took from the high street shop messed with his system and caused this. He was a fit, healthy lad and there was no reason for him to die.”

It is tragic. Your heart goes out to her.

But what has this to do with Raheem Sterling, who was filmed inhaling laughing gas in the privacy of his own home? Does he approve of drugs, suffering, pain and death? He is pictured giving the thumbs up as an innocent young man lies on his deathbed.

Karen says:

“The management need to take action and not pick him. They wouldn’t have him if he had been taking cocaine or heroin.”

But Sterling is not Adrian Mutu, the Chelsea player sacked for taking cocaine. He’s not Diego Maradona, whose contribution to the Peru’s GDP
