Japan Loses Sumo Wrestler, Kiyotaka Suetake To Coronavirus

LAGOS MAY 15TH (NEWSRANGERS)-He was tragically outmatched. Pro sumo wrestler Kiyotaka Suetake, known as Shobushi, died yesterday in Tokyo of multiple organ failure brought on by COVID-19, the Japanese Sumo Association announced.

The 28-year-old fourth-tier competitor became ill April 4, but hospitals turned him away until four days later, when he began coughing up blood. By April 19, he entered intensive care and never recovered.

Hakkadu, head of the association, said Shobushi was “fighting to the very end.” Several other wrestlers have tested positive, and an upcoming sumo tournament has been cancelled.
