Soccer star Fabio Borini has died after suffering a cardiac arrest while on holiday in Portugal.

The 22-year-old died at a hospital in Porto Alegre, Portugal.

His family confirmed the news.

Borini, who is from Rome, was diagnosed with colon cancer in December 2015.

He has a young son and daughter with his wife, the former Brazilian midfielder Luiz Felipe.

“Fabio Borriini, a player with the club AC Milan, is the son of an old friend and was born in Rome in 1985,” his family said in a statement.

“His mother, Lotta, was born and raised in Rome and his father was a member of the Milan club team.

He was an active member of his club, as he played for AC Milan for three seasons in the UEFA Champions League.”

The news of Borrizzi’s death was confirmed by the Italian soccer federation.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Fabio and his family,” a statement from the FAS said.

Borrizzini was born on June 1, 1987 in Rome to a family of Italian origin, the Associated Press reported.

He played for Italy for the past two seasons, and was also a member for the 2016 World Cup.

He joined AC Milan in 2015 and was a key member of their 2016 Champions League run.

Borretti made just 10 appearances for the Serie A club, scoring once.
