Hungarian first division player dead in Cyprus
NICOSIA, Jan 7 (Reuters) - Former Hungary midfielder Gabor Zavadszky died suddenly on Friday and was discovered by his Apollon Limassol team mates, police said on Saturday.
Zavadszky, 31, was found dead at home after he failed to join his team to travel to a match. Doctors believe he might have suffered a pulmonary embolism, league leaders Apollon said on their website. A post-mortem has been scheduled.
'Foul play has been ruled out,' a police spokeswoman said.
Apollon called off Saturday's fixture against THOI Lakatamia as a mark of respect.
Zavadszky, formerly with Hungarian teams MTK Hungaria and Ferencvaros, signed for Apollon Limassol last year.
