World Cup fever kills two more Chinese

Two more Chinese men died due to lack of sleep as they spent their nights watching the FIFA World Cup, bringing the tally to three.

A 51-year-old man suffered a heart attack after the Netherlands thrashed Spain 5-1. Elsewhere, a 25-year-old man was found dead hours after the same game, reports EFE.

A third man, 39, died while watching Uruguay's 1-3 loss to Costa Rica after he spent three consecutive days without sleep to watch the games. He suffered from high blood pressure and died in hospital due to a bleeding brain.

The match times in China range between midnight and 6 a.m. due to an 11-hour time difference between China and Brazil.
