"My name is Eric Wahl. I live in Seattle, Washington. I'm Grant Wahl's brother. I'm gay. I'm the reason he wore the rainbow jersey to the World Cup. My brother was healthy. He told me he received death threats. I don't think my brother just died, I think he was killed and I'm just asking for help." Thus begins a video posted on Instagram by the brother of the US journalist from CBS who died yesterday evening in the press gallery during the match between the Netherlands and Argentina, in which he asks to shed light on the incident and suspicions are cast on Qatar: "We are still trying to find out what happened, he collapsed at the stadium, received cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Then he was taken by Uber to the hospital and died. - concludes Eric Wahl - We just talked to the State Department and Celine (his wife, ed. ) spoke to Ron Klain and the White House."

The CBS reporter had been stopped by stadium security personnel before the start of the match and held for 25 minutes, as told by the person concerned, because of the shirt with the rainbow flag as a sign of solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community, later explaining however, he received an apology from FIFA for the episode.
