Motorsport: Lewis Hamilton inspired to win Spanish GP by five-year-old with rare bone cancer

  Mercedes have sent a Formula One car to the home of a terminally ill boy who Lewis Hamilton says inspired him to win the Spanish Grand Prix.

  Moments after recapturing the championship lead from Valtteri Bottas with victory at Barcelona, Hamilton dedicated his triumph to Harry Shaw - a five-year-old, diagnosed with cancer.

  Hamilton had been alerted to Harry's plight after he sent him a video of support from his hospital bed.

  Harry has since been transferred to his Surrey home for his final days.

  A JustGiving page has been set up in Harry's name with the aim of fundraising for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity to continue research into bone cancer.
