“The actor was diagnosed with the disease, which had progressed to stage III, in 2016 subsequently developing to stage IV before his passing on Friday.

“In 2018, Boseman gave an emotional interview on SiriusXM detailing his relationship with two boys with terminal cancer during the filming for Black Panther, never mentioning his battle with the disease and their similarities.”

The annual Bermuda Sandcastle Competition will be held on Saturday, September 5th, on Horseshoe Bay.
