Top British Olympian, 56, Dies from Massive Heart Attack

British Olympian and former distance runner John Nuttall has died after suffering a massive heart attack; he was just 56.

Nuttall competed for Great Britain in the 5,000 meters at Atalanta 1996 and at the 1993 and 1995 World Championships.

After retirement, Nuttall became a successful elite coach, supporting British endurance runners in the London 2012 Olympics.

His wife and former Scottish runner McColgan announced the news of Nuttall’s death on social media.

She posted:

“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart I write this.”

“My husband John Nuttall died yesterday morning with a sudden heart attack.”

“A much-loved dad, son, brother and husband. For those that love John, our hearts are breaking.”

Nuttall leaves behind two children, Hannah Nuttall and Luke Nuttall, both currently run for Great Britain.

UK Athletics said in a statement:

“Everyone at UKA is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of our former colleague John Nuttall.”

“His loss is felt deeply by friends and colleagues here at UKA who worked alongside and knew John. Our thoughts are very much with his family and close friends at this time.”

Fans on Twitter have wished the Nuttall family well:

“We are saddened to hear of the passing of John Nuttall.”

“We offer our condolences to his family and friends.”

A second said: “RIP John Nuttall. Great athlete, great coach, great guy.

“Sending much [love] to his nearest and dearest at this sad time.”

And a third said:

“So, so sad to hear about John Nuttall. Heartbroken for his family and those closest to him.

“John was a good friend and colleague who always made me laugh.”

“A brilliant person to have around and one of the best teammates. Cheers to you John, you’ll be missed.”
