Tributes are being paid to a talented 17-year-old student who died during a swimming trip in Canada while on a school rugby tour.
Jamal Ottun, who attended Wallington County Grammar School in Sutton, London, passed away on Vancouver Island in British Columbia after emergency services could not save him.
Headmaster Jonathan Wilden released a statement describing Jamal as "exemplary, popular and talented".
"He was a very generous individual, always looking for the best in people and wanting to help them achieve great things.. Jamal was a very keen sportsman, be it on the rugby pitch, the running track or excelling in virtually any other sporting activity.
"The short time that he did spend on this trip was characterised by tremendous fun as demonstrated by the photographs that he had already shared with family and friends.
"This tragic event has left a huge hole in the WCGS community, and this is keenly felt by all staff, students and others who have come into contact with Jamal."
A memorial service is being held for the teenager and a Facebook page has been set up for those who knew him to share their memories.

Tears me up that someone such as you has gone. You radiated happiness and it's such a shame not to have known you better. RIP @jamalottun— Murdo (@MurdoHepburn) July 13, 2015
