The former welterweight boxing champion Vernon Forrest has been shot and killed during an apparent robbery in Atlanta, according to reports in the United States. Forrest, 38, may have been robbed and was shot "multiple times in the back", said a spokeswoman for the Atlanta police department. A post mortem is planned for today but currently there are no suspects, police said.

"Vernon was one of the few decent people in boxing," said the boxing promoter Gary Shaw, who led tributes from across the sporting community that focused on Forrest's charity work as well as his achievements in the ring.
