Azaylia passed away earlier this year after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukaemia. She was eight months old.

Taking to their Instagram stories, Ashley and his partner Safiyya Vorajee shared pictures of their daughter's grave, which is covered in decorations, lights, soft toys and a sign that reads "Santa, stop here.".

After their daughter was diagnosed with cancer, Ashley and Safiyya began raising money to help fund her treatment. When baby Azaylia passed away in April, the couple set up a charity in their daughter's name. The Azaylia Cain Foundation was established to support young children with cancer, as well as their families.

He said that the past few weeks have been "unbearable".

The footballer continued: "I still will never be able to understand why you got taken away from me baby. I see nothing but emptiness, I feel nothing but numbness and the pain today is no less than the day I lost you.

"You fought every day for your life and I will fight every day to keep mine. You made my life so easy when it was so hard, so bright when it was so dark and overflowing with happiness through all the pain.

"You are such a special little girl and I will never ever forget you. What you have given me in those 8 months will stay and keep my broken heart pumping forever. I love you champ!"
