Rod Stewart has endured another immense loss in his family just two months after the passing of his brother, Don.

In a heartbreaking Instagram post, the veteran singer revealed his other brother, Bob, died this week aged 88, meaning Rod has lost two siblings in as many months.

“It’s with great sadness that I announce the loss of my brother Bob last night, who joins my brother Don on the great football pitch in the sky,” the 77-year-old shared on Instagram. “I’ve lost two of my best mates in the space of two months. RIP Don and Bob ‘irreplaceable buddies.'”
