Officers found the stabbed victim seriously injured near St. Paul’s Cathedral, Ludgate Hill, and gave him CPR.
He was rushed to the Royal London Hospital, where he later died.
No arrests have been made and police have launched a murder investigation.
Assistant Commissioner Pete O’Doherty, from the City of London Police, said: “City of London Police were called to reports of a stabbing in Gresham Street, EC2V, at 11:30pm on May 1.
“Officers found a man suffering from serious injuries and carried out CPR at the scene before he was taken to the Royal London Hospital where he later sadly died.
A forensics team had cordoned off parts of the road this morning.
It comes after a man in his 30s was knifed to death in Greenwich, South East London, in the early hours of Sunday.
British Transport Police detective chief inspector Steve May said: “This was a shocking and brutal act of violence which has resulted in a man tragically losing his life today.”

Sorry the number that we need to text is not working and I don’t speak enough English to call, II may be expressing myself badly because i’m french but I maybe have been here for the murder. I was waiting for the bus near of 00h I think and I was with a friend. I heard a woman screaming to death for a long second and a moment later a scooter ran into me and my friend, I barely had time to throw myself on my friend so as not to take the scooter which would have literally killed me and him as well. he was on the sidewalk and driving as much as possible, he really wasn’t afraid to rush at us, he didn’t even turn the steering wheel. I don’t know the color of the scooter and I didn’t see the guy’s face. testimony is important that’s why I contact you. I don’t speak good English but hope it could help. ( I don’t remember the road bus because I’m not from here) but it was a long sloping street and the screams were coming up from the street.
