A 10-year-old boy has died after he hit his head on a wall while playing football at school, an inquest heard.

Yasir Hussain, from Ward End in Birmingham, died in hospital five days after he was injured at Leigh Primary School, the BBC reported. An inquest at Birmingham Coroner's Court heard that the boy was playing in goal and struck his head while jumping.

The school's deputy head said she understood he had slipped on a puddle when she called emergency services. Christopher Rabone, the school's community sports health officer, said Yasir was on the floor and able to speak, but he could not explain what had happened. He was taken to the first-aid table and was able to walk unaided.
