Seoul: A South Korean man has drowned after jumping into a river to celebrate the country advancing to the second round of the World Cup.

Police said the 20-year-old university student, surnamed Lee, leaped into Seoul`s Han River with three friends on this morning after South Korea held Nigeria to a 2-2 draw in their final group game and made it to the knockout phase.

Lee`s friends quickly got out of the water but he failed to do so. Police say they later rescued Lee and took him to a nearby hospital but he died.

Police said one of Lee`s friends told investigators they jumped to celebrate South Korea`s advance.
