Russian student footballer dies after lightning hits metal goalposts

Russian authorities say a young football player has been killed and three others injured after lightning struck the goalposts during a game.

The 18-year-old, who has not been named, died during a game in a local competition involving teams of students on Wednesday in the Siberian town of Rubtsovsk, regional investigative authorities say in a statement.

Players from both teams were crowded in the penalty area when lightning hit a set of metal goalposts.

Investigators say the 18-year-old “died at the scene” and three other players needed medical treatment, without giving further details of their condition. (NAN)
