A tragic news has come from Qatar, where the quarter-final challenge between the Netherlands and Argentina was taking place.

When the extra time of the match was being played, the American journalist of Sports Illustrated, Grant Wahl, has passed away at the age of 48.

The probable cause of death, according to CBS reports, was a heart attack, and efforts to revive him were futile.

As he himself had declared, Wahl had been suffering from an annoying bronchitis for days. According to two New York Times reporters who were present, medical personnel tried for about 20 minutes to save the journalist’s life, but the miracle did not happen.

The 48-year-old was watching the match from the press room of the Lusail Iconic Stadium when he wrote his latest tweet on the occasion of Holland’s equaliser.
