A Celtic fan in Milan was killed on Tuesday night after being knocked down in a traffic accident.


The man, who has not been named, was in the city to watch his side's UEFA Champions League tie against the Italian giants.


He was struck by a taxi at shortly before midnight and taken to the Niguarda hospital, but doctors were unable to save him and he died later that evening.


"We can confirm that a British citizen was killed last night in a road traffic accident at 11.30pm involving a taxi," said Joanne Yeadon, press officer at the Milan consulate.


"Next of kin have been informed. My colleagues are dealing with the authorities and offering consular assistance."
