Qatar World Cup became a journalist’s grave! Third Sudden Death: Briton Roger Pearce passed away
The Qatar World Cup is becoming a mysterious tomb for sports journalists.
Three journalists died suddenly while covering the World Cup in Qatar. Before the deaths of US reporter Grant Wahl and Qatari photojournalist Khalid al-Misslam, British journalist Roger Pearce, technical director of ITV Sport, died covering the match, Veteranstoday.com writes.
The Independent tells the story, explaining that Pearce’s death, which occurred on 21 November, was announced on the broadcast before the Wales v United States game.
The longtime reporter died suddenly, like his colleagues, at the age of 65, probably from one of those heart attacks that are so common after the massive spread of experimental COVID-19 gene serums.
Roger Pearce, the technical director of ITV Sport, has died while covering the World Cup in Qatar. Pearce was covering his eighth Fifa World Cup tournament when he died.
His death was announced ahead of Monday’s (November 21) game between Wales and the US, with announcer Mark Pougatch breaking the news. “We have very sad news for you from Qatar,” he said.
“Our technical director, Roger Pearce, who started his eighth World Cup here, has sadly passed away.
“Roger was a highly respected figure in TV sports broadcasting, and for ITV he was instrumental in the logistical planning and execution of the Rugby and Football World Cups,” he said .
Pougatch went on to say that Pearce “always had a smile on his face and left a smile on your face” and called the late technical director “extremely dedicated, professional, charming and extremely popular.”
“He will be missed by many people in the industry and at home,” he concluded.
Studio director Neil Stainsby paid tribute to Pearce on Twitter, revealing that he would retire in five weeks. “So sad to hear of the passing of my friend and former colleague at ITV Meridian, Roger Pearce. He passed away on his last assignment in Qatar before retiring in 5 weeks. RIP Roger,” Stainsby wrote.
