Egypt national team cyclist Islam Nasser has passed away after suffering heart failure at the 2017 African Track Championships, held in South Africa.

Nasser’s passing is sad news not just for the Egyptian community, but for the nation as a whole.

The African Cycling Confederation has postponed all further events on Monday.

The 23-year-old finished in third place at the 2012 Arab Track Championships, as well as third place in last year’s African tournament, held in Morocco.

KingFut sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Islam Nasser, and wishes them strength in this difficult time.
