Copenhagen: Carl Aage Praest, a former Juventus striker who also won an Olympic bronze medal with Denmark at the 1948 London Games, has died. He was 89.
A death notice published in Wednesday's Politiken newspaper said Praest died on Saturday.
Praest scored 17 times in 24 games for Denmark. A year after the Olympics, he signed a professional contract with Juventus, and was thus banned from Denmark's amateur-only side.
