Autopsy reveals cause of Foley death


Munster coach Anthony Foley's death was caused by a heart condition that resulted in a build-up of fluid in his lungs.

An autopsy revealed the 42-year-old suffered from an acute pulmonary edema, caused by a heart rhythm disorder.

Tributes have poured in from across the world of sport for the hugely popular Irishman, whose passing was announced on Sunday.

Foley, whose funeral mass will be held on Friday, had been in a Paris hotel ahead of Munster's European Champions Cup match with Racing 92, which was subsequently postponed.
