Kenyan Man commits suicide after Manchester United defeat

A man believed to be a fan of Manchester United Football Club committed suicide last night in Nairobi’s Pipeline estate after the team lost 1-0 to Newcastle. Police said John Jimmy Macharia aged 23 jumped to his death from the 7th floor of a building he was after learning his team had lost in the Saturday evening match.

Police said Macharia told his friends he could not stand and watch the team beaten in a row before he leapt down dying on the spot. The body was later removed and taken to the mortuary by police who arrived there. Macharia is said to have landed on his head dying instantly. Manchester United slumped to their second home Premier League defeat in the space of four days as Yohan Cabaye’s goal gave Newcastle a first league victory at Old Trafford since 1972.
