A British man has died taking part in the Malta marathon, reportedly a mile from the finish line.
Media reports in Malta said the Briton, believed to be 55, was accompanied by his wife during the race.
The runner was allegedly given the all-clear to participate in the 26-mile competition two weeks prior by a doctor after complaining of chest pain.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: "Our thoughts are with the family of a British man who died in Malta on 28 February.
"We stand ready to assist them at this difficult time."
