Karim Gazzetta dead at 27: Swiss football mourns as former international star dies after jumping from building | The Sun

SWISS football are mourning the tragic loss of former international Karim Gazzetta.

The 27-year-old sadly jumped from a building and took his own life.

The Sarajevo Times reports he lost his life in Kneza Viseslava Street in Bosnia and Herzegovina earlier this morning.

Gazzetta played in his home country for the majority of his career, although he joined Bosnian side HSK Zrinjski Mostar in 2022.

An injury restricted him to just one appearance for Zrinjski in the Bosnian Premier League, with the issue forcing him to miss half the season.

He was capped at every age level for Switzerland up to Under-20s.

You’re Not Alone

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.
