  • Ukranian footballer dies of heart attack in hotel room
  •  
    A Ukranian footballer, Oleksandr Shcherbinin, who was present for the Asia Pacific Masters Games 2018 (APMG) had earlier complained of chest pains to his roommate before his heart attack.

    An ambulance was immediately summoned to the hotel where he was staying after he collapsed but efforts to rescue him were unsuccessful.

    Shcherbinin, 57, died in his hotel room at 6.55am yesterday and doctors at the Penang Hospital confirmed that he had a heart attack.

    APMG chief executive officer Linda Geh said Oleksandr Shcherbinin’s family members in Ukraine have been informed about his death.

    In a statement released, Geh said “We are working closely with the authorities including the Ukraine embassy in Malaysia for arrangements to transport his body to Kiev,”

    APMG publicity and media director Loganath Velloo said Shcherbinin played as a goalkeeper for the Kharkiv Masters team in the APMG’s football 55 years and above category.

    He hailed from Kharkiv and he left behind a wife and two daughters.

    Players and officials observed a one-minute silence as a tribute to Shcherbinin before the kick-off of the APMG football matches yesterday.
