A 25 year-old man the Telegraph is describing as “fit and well” has died during a Wii Fit “jogging” session.

“We spoke to him on the phone when he was playing on the Wii machine. He told us he had just ordered himself a kebab and was sitting there with a glass of port,” said Tim Eves’ mother.

“But a little while after he had put the phone down, he collapsed for no reason. It was completely out of the blue.

“They still can’t come up with an answer why it happened, which is one of the reasons it is so hard to come to terms with – there was no reason for it.

“It is just unbelievable.”
