A Thai man was found dead in his home in Samut Songkhram province southwest of Bangkok on Thursday, police said.

The 24-year old was found slumped in front of his computer after a string of marathon all-night sessions.

“He was addicted to games. He hardly went to bed but always played computer games from night until morning,” local police officer Chaichana Boonrod said.

His body will be sent for autopsy to determine the cause of death, AFP reports.
