Stevan Jelovac’s drama began on November 14. He passed out while training at AEK Athens. Then it turned out that the basketball player had suffered a stroke. He was hospitalized in the Greek capital in a serious condition.

The 32-year-old was in the intensive care unit from mid-November. A few days ago, at the request of his family, he was transported to his native Serbia. Unfortunately, on December 5, the athlete died in Belgrade.

– What can I say at a moment like this? We lost a brother … He was a young man thirsty for life. He smiled even in the most difficult moments. We all believed in a miracle, but it didn’t happen. This story shocked us, says teammate Dimitrios Mavroeidis.

Jelovac was a basketball traveler. He played, among others in Russia, Germany, Turkey, Spain and Japan. Ten years ago he could have come to Poland, but his transfer to Silesia Wrocław did not take place. He signed a contract with AEK Athens in August this year.
