Amsterdam – A holiday in Amsterdam couldn’t have turned out worse for a British tourist. 30-year-old Charlie Batcup from Swansea in Wales went to Amsterdam with his brother and others to visit coffee shops. He died in our capital.
Various British media report this. It is still unclear what exactly happened to Batcup.
“I can’t believe I’m writing this, but my brother Charlie has passed away. We all went to Amsterdam and visited those coffee shops. But you of all people had to get a bad reaction and do what you did,” his brother Josh wrote in an emotional post on Facebook.
His sister-in-law writes: “You were one of Amsterdam’s sad victims to get that reaction and we still can’t believe it all.”
British media praise the 30-year-old Welshman, who was very active at the local football club, Pontliww FC. He is even called the heartbeat of the club. The football club also posted an emotional message on social media to honor the young electrician.
Footballer Joe Rodon, who is also from Wales and part of the Wales team, wore a shirt with a tribute to the late Charlie Batcup during a qualifying match against Armenia on Saturday.
