A young futsal player from Mysuru, who was aspiring to make it big in the sport in international leagues, has had a tragic death in Italy.

Yashwanth Kumar, who was pursuing Masters in Marketing at the Rome Business School, died on August 6, said his father N. Kumar, a resident of N.R. Mohalla.

Mr. Kumar, who is into handicrafts business, said his son was very passionate about futsal and therefore chose Italy so that he could pursue higher education and the game, besides playing in futsal leagues. He had gone to Rome four months ago. “We became anxious when he became inaccessible on the phone. We contacted his friends and others known to him. On Friday, we got the heartbreaking news that Yashwanth’s body had been found. We were told that Yashwanth is assumed to have slipped into a body of water and drowned. The Italian authorities are looking into the case and more details are awaited. The autopsy is expected on Wednesday,” said Mr. Kumar.
