UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father Abdulmanap has died in a Moscow hospital due to coronavirus-related complications aged just 57, Russia Today reports.
The legendary trainer had been hospitalised in Moscow for weeks after suffering a heart attack following his contraction of Covid-19.
Chechen Republic leader and friend of the family Ramzan Kadyrov reported the news on Friday.
Abdulmanap fell ill back in April with pneumonia-like symptoms and his condition deteriorated.
He was then flown to hospital in Moscow where he tested positive for coronavirus and then suffered a heart attack before undergoing bypass surgery. The veteran coach was then put into a medically induced coma.
