Lazio youth team player Mirko Fersini has died following an accident on his scooter last Friday.
The 17-year-old crashed into a large metal bin which had left him in an irreversible coma since the incident on April 6.
The boy passed away this morning. It is understood that his parents have allowed for his organs to be available for transplant.
Fersini, a brother to two sisters, was a defender with Simone Inzaghi’s Allievi Nazionali youth side.
