Marc Vivian Foe

Marc Vivian Foe was a Cameroonian footballer who played for Manchester City. In June 2003, his team faced Colombia in France during an international tournament. In the 72nd minute of the match, Foé collapsed in the centre circle he was stretchered off the field after failed attempts to resuscitate him on the pitch. Even though he was still alive upon arrival at the stadium’s medical centre, he died shortly afterwards.

An autopsy concluded that Foé’s death was heart-related as it discovered evidence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a hereditary condition known to increase the risk of sudden death during physical exercise.
