It's hard to convince others to take care of their body and to live a fit life when tragic things like this can happen anyway. At just 27 years old, and in the shape of his life, Birmingham City's striker Christian Benitez has died due to a heart attack.
He was even a transfer target for Tottenham, and just completed a £10million switch to Qatari side El Jaish from Mexican team Club America a few weeks ago.
It was at his debut for his new club on Sunday that he began feeling ill, and was admitted to the hospital after the game with stomach pains.
