In memory of 24-year-old Evzone Spyros Thoma, who died suddenly a few hours after his shift at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier last Thursday, the Presidential Guards paraded through the streets of Athens on Sunday, with Spyros’ father walking by their side.

One day after the funeral of the 24-year-old Evzone, Spyros’ father made his way to Athens for the special parade honouring his son.

At the end of the parade and after the Evzones’ returned to their base, they uttered “Athanatos”, meaning immortal and kept one minute’s silence for Spyros.
