Surrey cricketer Tom Maynard, 23, has died after he was hit by a District Line train on the London Underground in the early hours of this morning.

One of the country's most promising young batsmen, Maynard had played for Surrey against Kent on Sunday and appeared on Sky Sports' Cricket AM on Saturday.

A British Transport Police spokesman said:

"BTP officers were called to the line near Wimbledon Park London Underground station on Monday, 18 June after a man was struck by a District line train.

"London Ambulance Service medics attended but the man, believed to be 23 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The incident was reported to BTP at 5.03am and is currently being treated as non-suspicious."
