(ANSA) - Macerata, September 25 - A congenital heart defect
was the cause of an arrhythmia that killed former Italy
volleyball player Vigor Bovolenta after he collapsed during a
fourth-tier game in March, an autopsy has concluded.
Bovolenta, 37, was a key part of the Italy team that took
silver at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and won the 1995 and
1999 European championships.
His death shocked Italian sport and came just a month
before former Italy Under-21 soccer international Piermario
Morosini died after collapsing while playing for
Livorno in a second-tier match against Pescara in April.
Morosini was 25.
