SINGAPORE: Singapore's football legend Dollah Kassim has passed away. He was 61.
Nicknamed the 'Gelek King' for his extraordinary dribbling skills, Dollah suffered a heart attack a year ago while playing in a veterans' exhibition match.
Doctors said he suffered an injury due to a lack of oxygen to his brain immediately after the collapse.
He had been in coma since then and was cared for at home. - CNA/fa
