Espanyol captain Daniel Jarque has died after he suffered a heart attack following a training session, the club have confirmed in a statement.

The 26-year-old midfielder had been training in Coverciano, Italy, where the squad are on a pre-season camp.

Club doctors and Italian paramedics tried to revive Jarque without success.

His death comes two years after Sevilla defender Antonio Puerta, 22, died of heart failure after collapsing during a Spanish league game.

Jarque joined Espanyol at the age of 12, making his debut in 2002, and the Spaniard was handed the club captaincy this summer.

"Tragedy struck Espanyol and the family of Dani Jarque this evening. The blanquiazul player died from a cardiac arrest," said a club statement.

"The doctor carried out CPR on the player and used a defibrillator, which showed that the arrest was non responsive.

"RCD Espanyol, broken with pain, wish to put themselves at the absolute disposition of the family of our captain Dani Jarque, to whom go our warmest thoughts."

Espanyol, who had been due to play Bologna tomorrow, have suspended their pre-season tour of Italy and will fly back to Barcelona.

The president of city neighbours Barcelona, Joan Laporta, offered his club's condolences.

"We are filled with extreme dismay at this tragic event which we deeply regret," he told the Barcelona club website.

"Today we are all in mourning.

"I want to send, on behalf of FC Barcelona, our deepest sympathies to RCD Espanyol for the painful loss of their captain Dani Jarque, and to his family."

There's often something in changes to normal patterns that causes problems that no one can explain the reason for.

Take MMR for example and the rise in Autism.

Thoughts and condolances... Very sad.

Sad to see a young guy die.

I don't know about energy drinks, but sportsmen are so highly tuned nowadays that they put extra stress on their bodies. It could even be something congenital that was undiagnosed.
