Former QPR youth player Kiyan Prince has been added to Fifa 21 to mark the 15th anniversary of his death.

He was stabbed to death at 15 while trying to break up a fight at school.

Prince will also be listed as a QPR squad member during the 2021-22 season and his likeness will feature on a special edition trading card.

On seeing his son as a 30-year-old, Dr Mark Prince OBE told BBC Breakfast: “It was very emotional. I could see Kiyan in there. I’m really proud.”

Special effects studio Framestore virtually recreated Kiyan and the imagery will also feature on billboards as part of an advertising campaign.

“Kiyan Prince returns to life as the professional footballer he should have been,” QPR tweeted.

Dr Prince set up the Kiyan Prince Foundation to educate young people about the consequences of knife crime, and in 2019, QPR renamed their Loftus Road ground after the charity.
