Hospital officials in Italy have said a footballer who collapsed on the pitch today has died after a cardiac arrest.

The Livorno midfielder Piermario Morosini was playing against Pescara in a Serie B game when he fell to the ground.

Witnesses have said Morosini, 25, tried to get back up but then collapsed again.

A doctor told Italian media: "He suffered a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately he was already dead when the ambulance arrived. He never regained consciousness."

There have been reports that a police car had blocked the ambulance's way into the stadium, delaying the arrival of paramedics and specialist equipment.

The match was abandoned after 31 minutes with other players in tears.

And the Italian federation has called off all league games for the rest of the weekend.

Morosini was capped as an under-21 player and on loan to Livorno from Serie A side Udinese.

The incident comes just weeks after Bolton Wanderers' player Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the field in a live televised game against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

RIP Morosini.

Very sad and a wierd coincidence this happening so soon after Muamba. I'd never heard of this happening in football before these incidents.

Surely this has to highlight the fact that all players pre contract medicals should be more stringentand not just at "injuries" but the whole pysical being. RIP

I think they do... The problem is you cannot predict when someone is going to have a heart attack. It could happen to a broad range of fitness levels. Could happen to anyone!

Such sad news.

OMG.

Did you see the Referee?

He didn't even look, a player behind him was shouting at him but he never turned round and let play carry on.

Terrible.

Cardiac Arrest. I think it was different to the Muamba one though.

I think thats very harsh - the vast majority of people who receive CPR sadly don't make it back and they die - as would probably have been the case with Muamba if he wasn't such a high profile incident with such specialist services a few seconds away - probably would have been an entirely different outcome if this had happened outside the premier in this country.

Such a tragic waste of a young life - thoughts with those affected by this - his family and friends

RIP Piermario Morosini

That video is grim viewing. Just shows how fortunate Fabrice Muamba was.

Terrible news and my sympathy is with all those touched by it.
