A Northern Ireland supporter has died at the Stade de Lyon

A Northern Ireland supporter has died at the Stade de Lyon as he watched the team beat Ukraine at the Euro 2016 tournament in France.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said the 62-year-old man, who was from Belfast, collapsed in one of the stands at about 18:00 local time.
Medics tried to resuscitate him inside the stadium but he was later pronounced dead.
He is the second Northern Ireland fan to die in France this week.
Tribute
Early on Monday morning, 24-year-old Darren Rodgers, from Ballymena in County Antrim, died after a fall from a promenade in Nice.
The incident happened just hours after Northern Ireland’s opening game of the tournament against Poland.
Northern Ireland’s players wore black armbands during the win over Ukraine in Lyon in memory of Mr Rodgers.
There was also a minute’s applause by supporters inside the ground in the 24th minute of the game as a tribute to him.
