He was taken to hospital, where he sadly died.

A post mortem carried out was inconclusive and further tests will be conducted to establish the cause of death.

“The incident began with the theft of a bicycle from outside McDonalds in Coventry city centre which culminated in a fight in Lady Herbert’s Garden.

“I want to appeal to anyone who was in the area yesterday morning and saw what happened to contact me as a matter of urgency.”
