There he has also talked openly about the loss of his father, who died of cancer in April this year, just a month before the recording.
– Dad sat in the hospital bed in the living room and I right next to him on the couch. Then we sat there with the map. He set up routes, and then I would find a compass course, the 21-year-old said on TV.
