Kazakhstan’s Olympic medal-winning figure skater Denis Ten has been stabbed to death at the age of 25.

News agency Kazinform reported Ten – who won bronze at Sochi 2014 – was stabbed in the thigh in Almaty on Thursday after two men tried to steal his car mirrors.

Ten, twice a World Championship medallist, was rushed to hospital but died three hours later of his injuries.

“Unfortunately, he is not with us anymore,” said a government spokesman.
