An England fan who died in Bulgaria has been identified as a 32-year-old man from Staffordshire.

Rob Spray, from Hayes Heath, passed away ahead of Monday's Euro 2020 qualifier in Sofia.

The cause of his death hasn't been established.

Over £15,000 has been raised in online donations, after a GoFundMe page was set up.

It says: "Don’t know exactly what’s happened but we do know Spray was the nicest softest lad everyone ever met.

"What happened is nothing but a tragedy.

"We all need to come together to support Spray’s family as much as we can."

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said in a statement: "We are supporting the family of a British man who died following an incident in Sofia, and our staff are in contact with the UK and Bulgarian authorities."
