A YOUNG man died suddenly whilst playing football in Elche.

The 21-year-old was playing football after renting the sports pitch at the University Miguel Hernandez for private use with a group of friends. He reported feeling sick before collapsing immediately.

Emergency ambulance crews could not save him as his parents and brother arrived at the scene.

The University said the young man was not a student or worker at the university and expressed their regret at what had happened, sending condolences to the family.

The death is the second to occur in similar circumstances in recent months. Last November a teenager died suddenly after collapsing during a basketball game.
