She had earlier said: “Our hearts are shredded. Rest in beautiful heaven, my child.”

Mr Karim’s sister, Ciara, described him as her ‘best friend, my big brother’, and added: “I love you more than you could ever know.”

The air ambulance was called out to help Mr Karim, the Evening Standard reported, but he died at the scene.

Described by a friend as having a ‘big heart’, he lived in Crystal Palace and hoped to become a barber, the Croydon Advertiser added.

It said tributes were left at the spot of the accident, including flowers, candles, and motorcycle helmets.
