An umpire, John Williams, has died a month after he was hit on the head by a ball during an amateur match in the United Kingdom.

According to a BBC Sport report, 80-year-old Williams from Hundleton in Pembrokeshire was struck with a ball while he was officiating a Pembrokeshire County Division 2 match between Pembroke and Narbeth on July 13.

He was then flown to a hospital in Cardiff where he was placed in an induced coma. He was then transferred to another hospital in Haverfordwest on August 1 where he passed away two weeks later.
