Tributes paid to Wales fan, 62, who died after travelling to Qatar

A Welsh fan has died in Qatar after travelling to watch his team in the World Cup.

Tributes have been paid to Kevin Davies who had reportedly travelled to watch the matches with his son.

The BBC has reported that Mr Davies, 62, from Pembrokeshire was not at Friday’s Group B qualifier with Iran and that he died of natural causes.

In a tweet, the Football Association of Wales said it offered “its condolences to the family and friends of Kevin Davies”.

They added: “Our deepest condolences from everyone at the Football Association of Wales. Our thoughts are with Kevin’s family and friends at this sad time.

“The FAW is in contact with Kevin’s family to help in whatever way we can”.

Welsh fan group Fan Embassy Wales tweeted: “Unfortunately we have lost one of the Red wall yesterday in Qatar.

“Our sincere condolences go out to his son here in Doha and his family back in Wales. May he rest in peace.”

A fellow Welsh fan posted that Mr Davies was a “true gentleman” who would be “mourned and missed”.
