HONG KONG (AFP) - A 27-year-old British man died while competing in a triathlon in Hong Kong at the weekend, police said Monday.

Daniel Bagshaw, a trainee solicitor, collapsed near the finish line of the ITU Triathlon Asian Cup near Hong Kong Disneyland on Sunday, having already completed the swimming and cycling stages of the race, reports said.

The cause of death was not immediately clear but the Hong Kong Standard quoted medical officials as saying the man may have suffered from undiagnosed heart problems.

The newspaper said he had been living in Hong Kong for several years.
