The official [ of the Sypreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy] leading the 2022 World Cup preparations says they are "working hard" to prevent further deaths [ of migrant workers] - but cannot give an assurance that other workers will not die in the construction of its stadiums.

Hassan Al Thawadi, general secretary of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, told Sky Sports News: "We will do everything we can to ensure that such tragedies do not occur again..."

"...We are working very hard, and endeavouring, to ensure that nobody suffers, nobody passes away, in relation to our work'.

"The 27 non-work-related deaths, and the three work-related deaths, are tragedies that we hope to learn from and hope to ensure that these tragedies do not occur again."
