A Scottish Muay Thai boxer has died in Thailand of suspected heatstroke on Sunday.
Jordan Coe, 20, was found dead in a heavy tracksuit and is believed to have been trying to reach a certain weight for a professional fight.
Mr Coe, of Maddiston, Falkirk was a professional Muay Thai boxer and formerly trained at a gym in Glasgow.
Trainer Kritchai Kritnok told police that the 20-year-old went out with the heavy clothing to try to shred three kilograms (6.6 pound) so that he could meet the 61-kg limit for a bout on Sunday, the Bangkok Post reported.

Craig Floan, his coach at Glasgow Thai Boxing Academy was told about his death in a phone call on Sunday.
He said: "Jordan was found this morning, he died in Thailand and the embassy there think he died from heatstroke.
"He moved to Thailand to chase his dream of becoming a professional after being with me for three and half years.
"We've set up a fundraiser for him and I'm now trying to help raise enough money to bring him home."
At the time of writing donations passed the £14,000 make, almost three times of what Mr Floan was trying to raise.
Mr Coe, trained at Carnage Mhay Thai Gym in Grangemouth, but moved to Ubon Ratchanthani, Thailand to pursue his Muay Thai boxing dream.
Mr Coe thanked his family and friends for supporting him on his journey on Facebook last week.
"Almost three years living in Thailand and with each year, I always learn more and more," he wrote.
"Thank you to my team, family, friends and fans for always helping me on my journey.
"I recommend anyone to go with their gut feeling and follow their dream. No matter what it may be."
Mr Coe had been scheduled to fight a Cambodian boxer in the Muang district on Sunday night and was expected to return to Scotland in summer to fight at the Glasgow Thai Boxing Academy.
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We are providing assistance to the family of a British national following their death in Thailand.
"Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time."
