Cafu's son suffers heart attack, dies aged 30

Cafu won the World Cup with Brazil in 1994 and 2002.

The son of Cafu, Brazil's World Cup winning captain, died on Wednesday night aged 30 after suffering a heart attack.

Danilo was playing football on his sister's birthday in the Alphaville neighbourhood, north west of Sao Paulo, when the incident happened.

Danilo was taken to a hospital but was unable to be saved by medical staff after a third heart attack.

The information was confirmed to ESPN Brazil by Paulo Sergio, former teammate and friend of Cafu, a legendary Brazil right back.
