AT least six people have dropped dead from excitement or stress after watching late-night World Cup matches in China, a news report in Hong Kong said today.

Millions in a nation of 1.3 billion have been staying up as late as 5am to watch the World Cup live, even though China did not qualify for the finals.

A 43-year-old woman with a history of high blood pressure reportedly dropped dead in Zhejiang after becoming highly excited during last week's South Korea-Togo game.

Other football-related deaths have been reported in Changsha, Zhuhai and Wenzhou, the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reports.
