A Welsh football fan who flew out to Qatar to watch the World Cup with his son has died.
The man is understood to have been in Doha with his son and friends, but was taken ill and died of natural causes on Friday.
The Wales Football Supporters’ Association’s fan embassy wrote on Twitter: “Unfortunately we have lost one of the Red Wall yesterday in Qatar, our sincere condolences go out to his son here in Doha and his family back in Wales. May he rest in peace.”
Noel Mooney, chief executive of the Football Association of Wales (FAW), wrote on Twitter: “So sorry to hear that one of our supporters has passed away here.”
He added: “Our condolences go to the family and of course we are here to support however we can.”
A Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office spokesman said: “We are supporting the family of a British man who has died in Qatar.”
Officials believe more than 2,500 Wales supporters have made the trip to Qatar for the tournament.
