One of Britain's most famous and talented snowboarders, Nelson Pratt, has been found dead at his home in Hampshire.
Tributes have been pouring in for 33-year-old 'Nelly', whose father discovered him hanged at his home in Grately, near Andover.
Although emergency services rushed to the scene, Nelson died at his parents' home.
An inquest into his death opened on Monday, where his cause of death was given as hanging. Hampshire police said they were not investigating any suspicious circumstances surrounding Nelson's death.
Nelson, who coached the Team GB snowboarding team, and the army snowboard squad, was described by Whitelines editor Ed Blomfield, as "one of the most respected riders in the UK team" who was "friendly, funny, loyal and above all humble."
An interview conducted by the snowboarding before his death was titled 'Mr Nice'.
Snowboarders and friends have been paying their respects on Facebook.
"A kind, wonderful, talented man who will be missed by all who knew him," one user Ed Leigh wrote.
Another paid tribute to Nelson as: "A man with a smile and nice word to say to everyone all the time, this is such sad news."
Nelson can be seen snowboarding below.
