THE mother of former Chelsea youth player Jordan Tabor has paid tribute to her son who died on holiday in Turkey on Wednesday.
Mr Tabor, 23, is believed to have fallen from his hotel room a week into the stay at the Titanic Beach Lara Hotel, Antalya.
Louise Bates, from Wootton, said the messages she has received about her son show how much he was loved.
She said: “He was our life, he was our son, he was our best friend. He had a kiss and a hug for everybody he ever met. He was a wonderful son and an amazing brother."
Mr Tabor was on holiday with his girlfriend Danielle McEachran, the sister of Chelsea and England under-21s midfielder Josh, who lives in Oxford.
Mr McEachran, who was with them in Turkey, tweeted: "Rest in peace my older brother Jordan Tabor. Love you forever mate! Can’t stop thinking about you bro!"
His girlfriend, soap star Brooke Vincent, also tweeted her tributes to Mr Tabor.
