Heart failure caused the death of 1970s disco icon Bobby Farrell in a Saint Petersburg hotel room this week, his agent said Friday citing Russian authorities.
“It was heart failure,” agent John Seine told AFP by telephone from the northern Dutch town of Heemstede.
Steine said he had received an email Friday lunchtime from Euromed, a medical institution holding Farrell’s body in a Saint Petersburg mortuary, to report the findings of a post-mortem investigation by Russian authorities.
Farrell, 61, was found dead in his bed by a hotel employee on Thursday morning, having given a performance the night before during which he reported feeling unwell.
The group sold more than 50 million singles and 60 million albums worldwide.
