The 2018 FIFA World Cup has just started about a week ago on June 14 and football fans are already going crazy trying to catch up with the matches. Since it’s set in Russia this time around, people all over the world from different time zones will have to endure some late nights just to catch their team in action.
If you’re one of these football fans who have to watch every match then please do take care of your health! A 28-year-old man named Yang from Yiyang, Hunan in China has sadly died presumably due to the World Cup disrupting his normal sleep schedule.
According to iFeng, Yang, who was a hardcore fan of football, never misses a single match and was excited for the World Cup this time. He would often stay up late just to catch a football match with a glass or two of ice-cold beer for company. It was no different this time for the 2018 World Cup as he also stayed up to watch the games.
He reportedly watched one of the matches until 3am before going to bed and felt unwell the next morning. It was reported that he took a half day leave and reported for work in the afternoon. However, one hour after clocking in to work, he started to feel ill and fainted on the spot, much to the horror of his colleagues. OMG!
They tried to revive him but they were not able to do so while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. When the ambulance arrived, the medic team gave him CPR and tried their best to revive Yang. Unfortunately, their attempts were still unsuccessful and they had to declare him dead.
The director of the emergency department in Yiyang Medical College, Huang Wei said that the main cause of Yang’s death was because of his irregular sleep patterns recently as he had been staying up late to watch the World Cup matches. The doctor said that his habit of drinking beers was one of the causes as well.
Huang explained that the number of patients in the hospital would usually increase by 20% during events such as the World Cup happening. He said that many people would fall sick during this period as they’d purposely stay up late to watch the matches on top of eating too much junk food. Hence, he advises football fans not to overdo it and to make sure to prioritise their health before anything else.
Remember peeps! Don’t neglect your health during this World Cup season okay?
