Last year’s top Isle of Man TT newcomer, Davey Todd, has paid a heartfelt tribute to team-mate Daley Mathison, who was tragically killed in a crash on Monday.

English competitor Mr Mathison, who was 27 and from Stockton-on-Tees, came off at Snugborough on the third lap of the Superbike race – a section of the course that lies between Braddan and Union Mills.

Todd, who signed for the same Penz13.com Racing team as Mathison this year, said he was left ‘absolutely heartbroken’ by the tragedy.

In a post on social media, the 23-year-old wrote: ‘I can’t find the words right now. Absolutely heartbroken, I’ve lost so much more than my teammate today… my training partner, my friend, my partner in crime. I love you brother, rest in peace’.
