Fiorentina football team captain Davide Astori found dead in hotel room

The captain of Italy's Fiorentina football team, Davide Astori, has been found dead in a hotel room.
In a statement published on its website, the club said: "Fiorentina are profoundly shaken and forced to announce that their captain Davide Astori has died.
"For this terrible and delicate situation, and above all out of respect for his family, we appeal to the sensitivity of the media."

A club spokesman said he could not give a cause of death ahead of a post-mortem. Italian media reported that Astori died of a heart attack during the night.

The 31-year-old, who has a two-year-old daughter, was staying in a hotel in Udine to prepare for Sunday's match against Udinese, which has been postponed.
