French rugby player Jordan Michallet found dead at the bottom of an unfinished building

The 29-year-old France international was reportedly found dead at the bottom of an unfinished building after going missing earlier this week, with news emerging on Wednesday.

Police are reported to be treating his death as suicide.

The club will pay tribute to him in their next encounter, which is against Carcasonne on Friday.

He was a former French age-grade standout who spent time at Grenoble, Strasbourg, and Bourgoin. Michallet, who had recently married and was expecting a child, had just signed a three-year contract extension with Rouen.

Rouen Normandies statement:

“The Rouen Normandie Rugby family is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our dear Jordan Michallet,”

“This awful news plunges the whole club into immense pain. The management and the whole club are joining forces with his family in this terrible ordeal.”

Coach Sylvain Bégon of Grenoble, who trained Michallet when he was younger, said:

“It’s awful. Terrible! My first thoughts are with his family, his club, and all his old buddies. It’s a real shock.”

“He was a determined boy who was easy to train. He was asking himself the right questions”.
