Qatari photojournalist Khaled Al-Musallam passed away ‘suddenly’ while covering the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar on Sunday.

Al-Musallam’s death comes just one day after the announcement of the death of the American football journalist, Grant Wahl, while covering the World Cup in Qatar.

43-year-old Khaled Saif Salem Al-Musallam collapsed at Lusail Iconic Stadium while he was covering the match between Argentina and the Netherlands on Saturday. He was later taken to the hospital but was declared dead, according to Fox Sports.

Qatari sports channel Al-Kass announced, in a post on Twitter, on Saturday, the death of Khaled Al-Musallam, and said that he was a photographer working for them in the Creativity Department.

“Al-Kass channels mourn the death of Khaled Al-Musallam, photographer of the creativity department”, says the tweet, without explaining the cause of death.

“We believe in Allah’s mercy and forgiveness for him, and send our deepest condolences to his family,” Gulf Times wrote in a tweet.
