Police in Spain are investigating the death of an Irish tourist in Majorca on Monday morning.

Initial local reports described the 45-year-old as British after he was found dead in the street and Calvia Town Hall.

However, the Civil Guard, which is leading the probe into the incident in Martin Ros Street near the raucous Punta Ballena strip, subsequently revealed the man had been travelling on an Irish passport.

He was found unresponsive after the alarm was raised around 4.30am on Monday morning.

A security guard alerted local police, telling officers he had seen the man collapse and fall to the ground.

Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man was identified by the hotel wristband he was wearing.

Police reportedly went to the four-star ‘family friendly’ hotel, which has not yet been officially named, to try to speak to the man’s friends or relatives.

An post-mortem examination is due to be carried out on the man’s body on Monday, and police are understood to be collecting CCTV footage from the area.

A spokesperson for Calvia Council confirmed: “A 45-year-old man died in the street this morning in the Magaluf area.

“It occurred around 4.30am. The dead man was staying in a hotel in the area.”

He added: “An employee of a local establishment alerted police, saying that a man was unwell and was stumbling around in the street.

“Local police arrived and performed CPR but were unable to revive him. The Civil Guard has taken over the investigation to determine the cause of death.”

A Civil Guard source said: “This death does not appear to be crime-related in any way, but the autopsy will be key to determining what happens next.”
