German goalkeeper Robert Enke, who played for Hannover, was pronounced dead at age 32 on Nov. 10.

Unconfirmed reports emerged that indicate that the substitute goalkeeper for the German national squad threw himself beneath an oncoming train, Soccerway.com reports.

Enke played for Barcelona, but only made a lone appearance before returning to Germany in 2004 to play for Hannover. He has made over 150 appearances for the German club.

It is thought, as well, that the death of his 3-year-old daughter may have been the chief cause of his death.

A press conference will be conducted in Germany to reveal more details about the passing away of the 32-year old.
