Stade Francais teenager Nicolas Chauvin has tragically passed away after suffering a serious injury in an academy match.

On Wednesday, Stade confirmed the youngster had died in hospital after suffering a “cervical trauma that resulted in cardiac arrest and cerebral anoxia”.

A statement read: “It is with immense sadness that Stade Francais Paris shares the death of Nicolas Chauvin.”

“All our thoughts go to Nicolas’ family.”

Clubs and players were quick to show support for Chauvin’s family.
