Former India hockey player and coach MK Kaushik died of Covid-19 in New Delhi on Saturday. He was 66 and survived by his wife and a son. Kaushik passed away hours after his former India teammate Ravinder Pal Singh died of Covid-19 in Lucknow on Saturday.

MK Kaushik, a gold-medal winning member of the Indian hockey team from the 1980 Olympics in Moscow, was battling severe lung issues and he was put on ventilator support at a hospital in the capital city.

"He was shifted to ventilator this morning but passed away just now," his son Ehsan told the Press Trust of India.

MK Kaushik who was bestowed with the Dronacharya Award in 2002, had coached the India men's team to Asian Games gold in 1988. He also worked as the head coach of the senior women's hockey team. The Indian women's team had won bronze medal at the Doha Asian Games in 2006 under his coaching.
