G2's Davidp confirms he will not drop out of Valorant tournament after his father's passing

The Belgian player had to leave during G2's match against FunPlus Phoenix in the Allied Esports Odyssey tournament after receiving the distressing news.
In a sign of immense professionalism, G2's David "Davidp" Prins has officially confirmed he will not be dropping out of the Allied Esports Odyssey Valorant tournament, following the distressing news of his father's passing while in the middle of a match.
"Decided to play today's match and to continue playing the Allied Esports x Ignition Series. It is not easy, not at all. I wanna do it for my father, I wanna do it to make him being proud of me, I want him to see that I'm gonna fight. I'm Professional and I'm gonna do my job."

Many fans thought the 25-year-old would not be participating in the rest of the Ignition Series certified event, leaving G2 in a precarious position as they would have had to find a replacement with less than a day's notice for their upcoming match.
