The tragic death of Craig Fallon

2005 world judo champion Craig Fallon has been found dead on a hillside two days after he went missing.

The 36-year-old was discovered at The Wrekin - a Shropshire beauty spot - yesterday morning after his worried family contacted cops.

There is no cause of death at this stage, but West Mercia Police have said there are no suspicious circumstances.

Fallon, who was appointed coach of the Welsh national team four months ago, leaves behind a partner and a son.

A West Mercia Police spokesman told the Shropshire Star: “A body was subsequently found at The Wrekin early on Monday morning.

 “No third party is believed to have been involved. The coroner has been informed.”

Having won the under 60kg World Championship title in 2005, Fallon went on to claim the 2006 European Championship and the 2007 World Cup.

The Ipswich born Judoka is the last Brit to win a world title and only the third British male to achieve the feat.
