A Nigerian fan of Chelsea FC of England reportedly slumped and died as he watched Leicester receive the FA Cup on Saturday evening.
The fan simply identified as Osondu according to GreenWhiteGreen GWG sources had joined others to watch the FA final between Chelsea and Leicester at a viewing centre along Nzekwe Street Asata, Enugu.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG had reported that Chelsea lost the final played at Wembley to Leicester by a lone goal.
Telemann’s second half cracker was what it took to dispatch the more favoured Chelsea and win the game for Leicester which had never won the cup despite eight appearances at the final.
It was gathered that Osondu slumped as he saw Leicester pick the cup at the expense of his team, Chelsea.
Osondu who was in his early thirties was reportedly immediately rushed to Parklane Teaching Hospital where he was reportedly pronounced dead on arrival.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG had reported that several Nigerians including some Chelsea fans had taken to Twitter to congratulate Leicester which parades two Nigerians on their victory.
