A man working as a groundsman for French club FC Lorient has reportedly died after a floodlight bar on the stadium fell on him

According to Canal Plus France, the Lorient employee, 38, needed automated external defibrillator treatment to save his life but despite the best efforts of the medical assistance, the groundsman was rushed to intensive care at Scorff hospital and was on a life support system.

News later broke last night that the club member of staff had passed away.
