A Russian builder died Tuesday after a crane collapsed at the construction site of the 2018 Football World Cup stadium here, investigators said.

The 25-year-old man was using the crane as a platform to carry out work when the part he was standing on detached and sent him falling 35 metres to his death.

Last month, a steel worker, 48, plunged to his death at the site of the new Spartak Moscow stadium, another World Cup stadium.
