The two men had been on a table next to Demetris Ilidzides, 35, and his unnamed 23-year-old female companion.

And in 2018, another Brit tourist died on the island after losing his battle to recover from a swimming pool seizure.

The 34-year-old man suffered an epileptic fit while swimming in a hotel pool and had to be resuscitated before being taken to hospital on August 9.
