Fiorentina captain and Italy international Davide Astori has died suddenly in his sleep aged 31.The dad-of-one was found in a hotel room by a massage therapist this morning after he did not turn up for breakfast or answer his phone.It is believed Astori died of “cardio-circulatory arrest due to natural causes” – a type of heart attack – but that he showed “no warning signs” of having any illness, said Udine prosecutor Antonio De Nicolo. Club spokesman Arturo Mastronardi said: “The lad did not turn up to the team breakfast at 9.30am and he was usually the first to arrive.“So they went to check on him. Davide was sleeping in a room on his own. The body has been taken for an autopsy, which I think will be conducted today.” A club statement read: “A profoundly shocked Fiorentina are compelled to announce that their captain Davide Astori, who was struck by an unexpected sudden illness, has passed away.Reports had initially claimed his team-mates broke down his hotel room door when he failed to show for breakfast or answer his phone. The centre-back had 14 caps for his country after making his debut in 2011 and had enjoyed a professional career spanning 12 years, which also took in the 2013 Confederations Cup.Photo Credit: Getty
