According to reports after an Autopsy Davide Astori died due to Heart related problems basically his heart simply stopped so religion never played a role in his death, all to often Sportsmen die due to heart related problems that were previously unknown which is strange considering the tests etc.they are put though.

indeed. there was widespread shock here (as can be expected) and, despite it being the same day as the general election, there was plenty of TV dedicated to the story. One of the things they were saying was that, here, sportspeople are subjected to far more rigorous health testing than most other place so, if it wasn't detected, it simply could not have been detected.

I can well believe that the testing is extensive. there's a massive emphasis on healthcare (so long as you can afford it) here - sometimes it feels like you'll get sent for a blood test and other shit just for a cold. to put things in perspective when compare to the UK: my wife recently decided to take up pilates and they would not let her subscribe to the course without a full set of medical checks on her, including an ECG. I mean... just for pilates!
