    Davide Astori (Italian footballer)

    A big shock in the world of football (soccer) today.

    Italy player and Fiorentina captain found dead in his hotel room on the morning of a game by his teammates. Only 31 years old.

    I read Cardiac Arrest on a few sites but some others are going the 'he was killed' route because the prosecutor in charge has started a culpable homicide inquiry. That is how it's done there before a body is autopsied though and they are saying it would be a surprise if anyone else was involved but they have to go by the book. He is being autopsied today (Tuesday) and the funeral is Wednesday

    I read that he was up with his teammate until about 11:30pm the night before on the PlayStation.

    It it will be interesting to find out what the comfirmed cause of death was. Most of the high profile football related deaths over the past 10 years or so have been due to cardiac arrest as a result of undetected defects.

    This one stands out a little in the sense that it hasn’t actually happened on the pitch during a game.

    So sad and so young. Very interested to find out what happened but I'm thinking cardiac arrest. RIP.
