World Silat champ collapsed after complaining of chest pains

SINGAPORE - Singapore's first silat world champion, Abdul Kadir Ibrahim, died suddenly on Friday night.

It is understood that the 40-year-old collapsed after complaining of chest pains following a jog.

He leaves behind a wife and six children, the youngest of whom was born last month.

He dabbled in coaching after retiring from competition before starting his own business.

Mr Kadir was buried on Saturday morning.

When The New Paper on Sunday visited their four-room flat at Woodlands Saturday afternoon, it was quiet but sombre.

His wife, who declined to comment, looked visibly affected as she spoke to some community leaders.

Mr Kadir's friends and family were huddled around in small groups at his flat.
