Danish basketball starlet dead at 20
Danish basketball is in mourning as its most promising basketball talent in years, Rasmus Glarbjerg Larsen, has passed away suddenly aged just 20 in Belgium.
The big Dane reportedly died in his sleep, according to his club Proximus Spirou.
“It is a real tragedy for his family and relatives. We are all upset,” said Gio Bozzi, the president of Proximus Spirou.
The club revealed that Larsen had not been diagnosed with any heart issues.
Larsen was heralded as Denmark’s biggest talent in decades, good enough to have a chance at being the first Dane ever to play in the promised land of basketball, the NBA.
Larsen is the third professional athlete to suddenly die in Belgium in the past week following the death of two young footballers, who both collapsed on the pitch during play.
