A second amateur rugby player has died after being admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties during a tour of Sri Lanka, a Durham rugby club has confirmed.
Thomas Howard and Tom Baty, both 26, fell ill on Sunday morning having been to a nightclub until the early hours.
Both were taken to hospital, but Mr Howard died on Sunday and after being treated by medics for two days, Mr Baty has now passed away.
One fit young man falling over dead happens sometimes. Two? Together?
