Kenyan Arsenal fan hangs himself

#1
A Kenyan fan of English football club Arsenal has hanged himself after his team's defeat by Manchester United.

The north London club was beaten 3-1 in the European Champions League semi-final second leg on Tuesday evening.

Suleiman Omondi, 29, who was watching in a bar in the capital, Nairobi, was incensed by the club's poor showing.

He left at half-time after arguing with a Manchester United fan and was found hanging from a rope in his house, still dressed in an Arsenal shirt.

'Broke down'

The BBC's Josphat Makori in Nairobi says the unprecedented incident has shocked football fans in Kenya.

According to his friends, Mr Omondi was in good spirits at the beginning of the match and even when Arsenal conceded the first goal, he did not seem to be affected.

He was so angry that he left in a rage

But things changed when the team conceded a second goal 11 minutes into the game.

A woman, who sat next to him in the bar, said Mr Omondi was so disappointed by Arsenal's poor performance that he broke down during half-time.

Another eyewitness told journalists that it was at this point that a Manchester United fan started taunting him.

"Suleiman got hold of him angrily by the neck and started pressing him so hard," he said.

"We quickly intervened and asked him to stop. Suleiman then stopped but he was so angry that he left in a rage."

His body was found on Wednesday morning.

Police officer David Bunei told the BBC the incident was being investigated.
What a twat. Still one less Gooner is no bad thing.

I know they were dire, but topping yourself is a bit harsh: it's only footie.

A fine example of how to behave as a dedicated supporter. Other fans please take note.

Did I hear Wenger say he was going to "swing for Almunia" at the post-match interview?

I suppose the old myth about Africans being well hung has finally been proven true *chortle*

Gentlemen! I find your humour tasteless in the extreme! You should all be suspended!

(Everyone knows that poor football supporters are highly strung)

It has saddened me to hear all the comments on this topic and not once did anyone really think about what they where actually saying. A person has lost there life, some of the comments are ropey to say the least and others just seem to swing to and fro about whether Arsenal are a good team or not. If I had to stick my neck out I would say they are, however before you start replying at break neck speed it is simply my opinion.
