A 28-year-old French soccer fan has died in a Belgrade hospital after being injured in violence ahead of a Europa League match between Partizan Belgrade and Toulouse earlier this month.
“Brice Taton died at 10.00 a.m. this morning,” Belgrade’s Medical Centre spokesman Drago Jovanovic told Reuters.
Taton sustained injuries to his head and chest after a group of Partizan fans attacked him with iron bars and baseball bats in a central Belgrade bar on September 17.
The violence occurred several hours before Serbian champions Partizan and French first division side Toulouse played their Group J opener.
Toulouse won the match 3-2.
