Football fan dies after going 11 nights without sleep
A Chinese football fan died after going 11 nights without sleep as he tried to watch every single kick of the ball of Euro 2012.
Jiang Xiaoshan, said to be supporting England and France in the tournament, died of exhaustion.
Because of the time difference, he reportedly stayed up each night with friends and then went to work the following day.
Following the Ireland versus Italy match, Sina.com said he went back to his Changsha home at 5am, took a shower, fell asleep and never woke up.
Friends said the news of his death came as a shock, as he lived a ‘relatively healthy life’, and had played football for his university team just a couple of years before.
