Mexico City: The son of Mexico and Real Madrid football legend Hugo Sanchez was found dead on Saturday along with another man in a Mexico City apartment, officials said.

The body of 30-year-old Hugo Sanchez Portugal was found by his wife when she arrived in the apartment in the morning, Mexico City public security chief Jesus Rodriguez Almeida told reporters.

Investigators are probing the cause of death "because there are different possibilities at the moment," he said. A Red Cross spokesman told AFP earlier that, while the cause of death has not been confirmed, it was "apparently a gas intoxication."
