An Italian fan died as he celebrated his country's Euro 2012 2-1 semi-final win over Germany, Ansa news agency reported Friday.
Antonello Idda, an unemployed 52-year-old from Tempio Pausania on the island of Sardinia, fell onto a glass table which broke under his weight and a shard pierced an artery behind his knee.
The victim's brother called an ambulance but the man died before he could be given first aid.
