A teenage rugby player with French side Stade Francais has died after being injured in a game.

Nicolas Chauvin, who was 19, suffered a broken neck after a tackle early in a youth match at Bordeaux on Sunday.

The injury led to the back-row suffering a cardiac arrest and brain damage due to a lack of oxygen.

Absolutely tragic. Has anyone got any information about what actually happened in the tackle? As the French rugby are now calling for tackling below the waist. Was it a high?
