    QUITO, Pichincha: Thousands of fans filed past the coffin of Ecuadoran football hero Christian Benitez for a statesman-like farewell in Quito on Friday after an autopsy confirmed he had died of heart failure in Qatar. The 27-year-old striker, who was eyeing next year’s World Cup, died suddenly after his first game with Qatari club El-Jaish last Sunday, shocking fans as far away as Mexico, where he played for Club America last season.
