Harrow pupil dies after being punched on holiday in Malia
He was days away from getting his A-level results
An 18-year-old who died when he was punched during a fight in Malia has been named.
Harrow pupil Archie Lloyd died after he was allegedly assaulted by a promoter in the seaside resort in Crete.
Archie, who was days from receiving his A-level results, got into a drunken row and hit his head on the ground after being punched.
According to reports, he was found dead by his friends in his hotel room just hours later.
The incident occurred outside Cloud Nine nightclub and Archie –– who played for the top public school’s first XI in cricket and football –– died on August 6.
Promoter and model Sebastian Trabucatti was arrested and charged with “gross negligence leading to manslaughter” and has since been released on bail.
The 22-year-old, from West Sussex, denies causing Archie’s death.
A Foreign Office Spokesman said: “We can confirm the death of a British national on August 6.
“We are providing consular assistance to the family.”
Gianluca Gian Radesic, a friend of Archie’s, told The Times: “He truly was a special, influential and talented friend. He will be sorely missed.
“He was a boy with strong views and lived by the values he preached.”
