Coronavirus: death of father of MMA star Khabib Nurmagomedov

The father and trainer of Russian mega-star MMA (mixed martial arts) Khabib Nurmagomedov, Abdulmanap, has died from complications from the coronavirus, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov announced Friday.

“Sad news has come to me, my friends. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov has left this world ", he wrote on his social networks:" He has left us, having left a good name and raised a worthy generation! "Launched Mr. Kadyrov before saying a prayer to him .

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov is a legendary figure in wrestling in Dagestan, the Russian region where he came from. In addition to his son, he has trained dozens of world-class fighters or MMA fighters.

Contaminated by the coronavirus, he had been hospitalized in mid-May in Moscow in a serious condition and placed twice in an artificial coma.

Dagestan is one of the regions most affected by the coronavirus epidemic in Russia, to the point that Vladimir Putin had to intervene personally by ordering emergency measures in the face of the scale of the infections.

In May, Khabib Nurmagomedov called on his compatriots to respect the rules of containment, stressing that the situation was "very difficult in Dagestan" and at the end of May, the army was sent to deploy a field hospital and launch screening operations in this very poor little region.

I have ambitions and goals in my life, and I am now trying to achieve them calmly, as the name also came on my channel and website.
