WORK practices at a Qatar World Cup stadium construction site where a British worker died last year were “downright dangerous”, a coroner in Britain probing the death said Tuesday.

Zachary Cox, who was born in Johannesburg but later lived in Britain, plummeted 39 metres (128 feet) when a hoist he was using to put in place a suspended walkway broke at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha in January, 2017.

British coroner Veronica Hamilton-Deeley found the rope-access technician had fallen head first, sustaining brain injuries and a broken neck, after a safety harness had also snapped.

Brighton and Hove Coroner’s Court, in southern England where Cox had lived — heard new working practices, including the use of extra hoists to speed up construction after problems with some of the heavy metal platforms, had preceded the fatal incident.

Liverpool have fired a blank at Anfield against Real Madrid as they were dumped out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage to all but end their season.

The Reds squandered another of missed opportunities as they attempted to overturn the 3-1 deficit from the first leg in Madrid but again their attack was blunted with the score ending the same as when Los Blancos beat them in the Champions League final in 2018.

Out of all of the cups and the title race, Liverpool only have getting into the top four again to play for in what has been a disappointing season given the heights of last year.

Elsewhere, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden scored as Manchester City came from behind to defeat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in Wednesday’s second leg and book a blockbuster Champions League semi-final clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

Trailing 2-1 from last week’s first leg, Jude Bellingham curled hosts Dortmund ahead on away goals but City hit back through a Mahrez penalty and Foden’s strike to advance 4-2 on aggregate.

City now go on to play last year’s finalists PSG, while Real Madrid will face the Premier League’s other representative, Chelsea.
