  • A Qatar World Cup pundit had to leave the studio mid-match after learning her mother had died.
  • ITV’s Nadia Nadim said her mother was “killed by a truck.”
  • “Words can not describe what I’m feeling,” she wrote on Instagram.

ITV World Cup pundit Nadia Nadim has revealed she had to leave the studio in the middle of a match on Tuesday after learning that her mother had died.

Nadim, who plays for the Denmark women’s national team and Racing Louisville FC, wrote on Instagram that her mother, Hadima Nadim, had been killed in a collision with a truck.

The 34-year-old was part of ITV’s coverage of Denmark’s goalless draw with Tunisia when she received the tragic news.

“Tuesday morning my Mother was killed by a truck,” wrote Nadim. “She was on her way back from the gym.

“Words can not describe what I’m feeling. I have lost the most important person in my life and it happened so sudden and unexpected.

“She was only 57. She was a warrior who had fought for every inch of her life. She didn’t give me life once but twice, and everything I/ we are is because of her,” she added.

According to The Guardian, Nadim, her four sisters, and their mother fled Afghanistan when she was 11, having been in hiding for three years after her father Rabani, an army general, was executed by the Taliban in 2000.

“I have lost my home and I know nothings gonna ever feel the same,” Nadim wrote. “Life is unfair and I don’t understand why her and why this way. I love you and I will see you again.”

Former Manchester City player Yaya Toure was among those to send condolences to Nadim.

“I’m so sorry for your loss Nadia,” he commented on Nadim’s post. “Sending strength and prayers to you and your family.”
