A Latvian man living in Ireland has been stabbed to death by two men over a dispute surrounding the Winter Olympics.
Alexander Karpov, 26, was drinking while watching the men's skeleton final on television with two other men on Spa Street, Portarlington, County Laois, on Saturday.
One of the men then ran to the kitchen to pick up a knife and began to threaten Mr Karpov before stabbing him.
Mr Karpov was pronounced dead at the scene by the emergency services.
The Irish police have arrested two men, one in his 30s and the other in his 40s.
