A terminally ill Club Brugge fan delayed his euthanasia date in order to watch one final match.

Lorenzo Schoonbaert, 41, has undergone 37 operations over the last 20 years, but doctors said that he will not recover from the undisclosed condition, agreeing to allow him to end his life under Belgium's euthanasia laws.

"This is my dearest wish before I die to see my team win one more game. I am unbelievably happy now," The Metro quotes Schoonbaert as saying.

"This will be a treasured memory for my daughter which she can enjoy all her life. My last dream has come true. I can die in peace now. I will celebrate from heaven."

Schooenbaert's family confirmed that he died on Monday after being administered with a lethal injection.
