A Welsh rugby player has been found dead in a Spanish hotel after playing in a tournament with his team.

The man has been named locally as 29-year-old Luke Hole.

He is believed to have been found dead by his teammates in Magaluf on the island of Majorca.

Luke had been in Magaluf with teammates at Pontyclun RFC, taking part in the Majorca Beach Rugby sevens tournament along with dozens of teams from across the UK and Europe.

He is thought to have played in the two-day tournament with his teammates before being found dead on Monday morning.

A tweet published to the club's Twitter feed said "Everyone @PontyclunRfc is saddened by the loss of our friend Luke Hole, he was the life and soul and friend of many, never to be forgotten."

Friends have also taken to social media to pay tribute to Luke.

Such horrible news over the weekend. No status or photo could do Luke Hole justice. My oldest friend from being in nursery at younger than 3 years old together and growing up one street apart meant we spent so much of our childhood together. The most genuine guy you could meet who always had time for his friends and would help if he could in a heartbeat.

It's with deep regret we are sending our heartfelt sympathy to Pontyclun RFC, Family and Friends, on the tragic passing of Luke Hole, I personally had the pleasure of knowing this talented young man, who will never be forgotten.
