The 24-year-old was with British Transport Police (BTP) officers at the time of his fall to the ground on a Jubilee Line platform at around 11pm.

Officers performed resuscitation until London Ambulance Service (LAS) arrived and took the man to The Royal London Hospital, in east London.

He died the following day of a head injury.

BTP said they were reviewing CCTV and conducting an investigation to help establish how the man collapsed and suffered his injury.
