A Nigerian basketball player, Michael Ojo, has collapsed and died during a training session in Belgrade, the Serbian capital.

Ojo’s death was confirmed by his former team, Red Star Belgrade, on Friday.

“We are deeply saddened by the news,” Red Star’s spokesperson, Igor Vujicin, said.

Although, the causes of death were not disclosed, but local media claims Ojo suffered cardiac arrest.
