With the excitement running high over the Copa America 2021 final, a soccer fan took poison in North Chakmarkul in Ramu upazila of Cox's Bazar district on Sunday after Brazil's loss to Argentina.

Police said the Brazil fan, Mohammad Kamal, 20, is now undergoing treatment in Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital, reports UNB.

Locals said Kamal, a big fan of Brazil soccer team, was watching the Copa America final match in the morning.

As Argentina clinched the title by beating Brazil 1-0 in the final, Kamal got upset and attempted to commit suicide.

Efazul Haque, medical officer of Ramu upazila health complex, said Kamal was first taken to the upazila health complex in an unconscious state and then referred to Sadar Hospital for better treatment after clearing his stomach.
