MADRID – One man died and 11 others suffered minor injuries after a fight broke out outside Atletico Madrid’s soccer stadium between its fans and those of visiting team Deportivo La Coruna, officials said Sunday.

Madrid’s Clinico San Carlos hospital said a man died of injuries sustained in the clash between rival fans that broke out hours before the game near the Vicente Calderon stadium. Police made several arrests.

The man, identified only as a 43-year-old Deportivo fan, had to be removed from Madrid’s Manzanares River and attended to by emergency services, which initially resuscitated him before transferring him to hospital where he died hours later.

The presidents of both clubs appeared together on television to lament the incident.
