The Swiss football fraternity has been plunged into mourning following the tragic death of Karim Gazzetta.
The 27-year-old football star is understood to have died after he jumped from a building and took his own life.
According to The Sun, citing sources in Bosnia, Gazetta was found dead in Kneza Viseslava Street in Bosnia on Sunday, November 20.
The former international star played in his home country for most of his career before he joined Bosnian side HSK Zrinjski Mostar in 2022.
However, he was yet to establish himself as a key squad player for the team, with a serious injury limiting him to just one appearance for Zrinjski in the Bosnian top flight.
His tragic death has since been confirmed by Servette FC, which was his first club when he was starting out as a footballer.
