Previous Rugby League player Ricky Bibey has passed on at 40 years old.
He had played for Wigan Warriors, Leigh Centurions, and St Helens during his vocation.
On Sunday (17 July), Italian media detailed that he had been found dead in lodging in Florence while on vacation.
He was said to have shown up on Friday with a 43-year-elderly person, remembered to be his accomplice, who is being treated at the city’s Careggi medical clinic after she was found close by him with severe wounds.
Staff at the four-star Hotel Continentale disclosed on Saturday morning and alarmed the police.
A Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) representative said: “We are in contact with the Italian police following the passing of a British man in Florence.”
Back in the North West, Bibbey’s previous groups have offered the recognition.
Wiggan Warriors expressed: “Wigan Warriors are profoundly disheartened to learn of the death of previous prop forward, Ricky Bibey.
“Between 2001-2003, Ricky played 42 games for Wigan and was essential for the 2002 Challenge Cup winning crew.
“We send our sympathies to Ricky’s loved ones at this miserable time.”
Moreover, Leigh Centurions offered recognition, expressing: “We are frantically disheartened to learn of the death of their famous previous prop forward Ricky Bibey (HN#1211) while on vacation in Italy.
“Ricky was just 40 years old. Everybody at the club sends genuine sympathies to his loved ones.”
Mr. Bibey was an expert rugby player for over ten years until he resigned in 2012 because of an Achilles ligament injury.
He’s accounted for to have filled in as a home specialist soon after his retirement and had recently run an improvement organization.
