His former football trainer was interviewed and he said that the
father of Kim was a very professional player. He never smoked and
never drunk alcohol. Yesterday a film fragment was shown on Belgian
television : back in 1988 he won the "golden shoe" (the biggest
achievment for a football player on Belgian football fields, the
winner gets a normal shoe with a golden layer on top of it), when he
came home he asked Kim (between 4 and 5 years at that time) what she
got from her daddy if he won that shoe and yes, she said "a tennis
court !!" Later on it appeared that the father donated his "golden
shoe" for a benefit (and he is the only football player who has done
that)

Very sad. It's good Kim retired as she was probably able to spend a
lot of time with her father.

Lung cancer is often an aggressive cancer so her father probably had
not been diagnosed when Kim retired.

That may have even been a factor in her decision, although she never
mentioned it.

Yes, it is sad. Actually I thought he had died already. There was talk
that he might not see Kim's child, and the child was born long ago.
