The French tennis player, Mathieu Montcourt, died of natural causes according to authorities Wednesday. 

"First indications lead us to conclude this was a natural death. But one must await the result of toxicological analyses, which should be forthcoming next week, in order to be completely certain," a police source told AFP following the autopsy at the Paris Medico-Legal Institute (IML).

Montcourt was only 24.  He had previously been banned in eight games following an investigation where allegations arose he had bet on tennis outcomes over the Internet.

Montcourt appealed against the ban and the Lausanne-based Court of Arbritation for Sports reduced the sanction by two weeks citing the small sums of money involved - 192 dollars on 36 games - and the fact that he did not bet on games in which he was playing.
