A migrant worker has tragically died during the World Cup in Qatar while performing repairs on Saudi Arabia’s training base....

According to a report from The Athletic, a Filipino man thought to be called Alex, was involved in a forklift accident at the five-star Sealine Beach Resort where Saudi Arabia had set up base during the group stages.

It is suggested that the worker, who was rumoured to be in his early 40s, slipped off of a ramp while walking alongside the forklift and fell head-first against concrete. A medical helicopter was called in order to give him treatment but the victim unfortunately died on site.
