Indian soccer player dies on pitch

Written by Jahmal Corner

The news just keeps getting worse.

Indian soccer player D. Venkatesh has reportedly died after collapsing on the field while playing for A division club Bangalore Mars.

The cause of death is being reported as a cardiac arrest. He was 27.

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) said in a statement on its website:

“Venkatesh came on as a substitute in the second half for his club against South Western Railway in a Bangalore District Football Association ‘A’ Division match and collapsed during the back end of the match.”

This comes less than a week after Bolton’s Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the field and is currently in intensive care.
