Olympic figure skating medalist Denis Ten has been killed, according to prosecutors in Kazakhstan.
Ten, 25, was stabbed after a dispute with people who tried to steal a mirror from his car, according to Kazakh news agencies, and his case is now being treated as a murder.
Ten, who was born in Kazakhstan to a family of Korean descent, became Kazakhstan’s first medalist in figure skating when he won bronze at the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014.
Ten also won the Four Continents championships in 2015 and was a World Championship silver medalist in 2013.
After struggling with a number of injuries in recent years, Ten placed 27th at the Olympics in Pyeongchang back in February.
