Nairobi - A Canadian athletics coach passed away at Kenya's High Altitude Training Centre in Iten on Monday.

Coach Mathews Basil Clifford and Ethans Michael had booked into the training camp on March 8 for a two month training block.

"The death occurred at 7am around High Altitude Training Centre within Iten township area," revealed Fred Ochieng, Keiyo North OCPD.

Reports indicate that the duo went out for a training run at 5am and returned an hour later.

"Then suddenly while standing at the trainee's doorstep, he collapsed and was later pronounced dead," added Ochieng.

"Efforts to resuscitate him didn't bear any fruits. The police visited the scene and commenced investigation and the body was taken to Iten mortuary awaiting post-mortem."

Clifford was 70-years-old.
