Philippine sports have lost a key figure in the passing of Lucio “Bong” Tan Jr.

The 53-year-old businessman reportedly collapsed during a basketball game in Mandaluyong City on Saturday.

On Monday, his death due to brain herniation was announced by his family.

Tan was also a former national swimmer and an avid golfer.
