An exceptional teenage sportsman, academic and musician died after collapsing suddenly at his home on Saturday.

Whitgift School sixth-former Oluwatobi Adeyemi,16, collapsed at his family home in Vicarage Close, Kingswood shortly before 7pm.

The teenager, who hoped to study at Oxford University and was involved with the Sutton Christian Centre, was rushed by ambulance to Epsom Hospital where he later died.

Investigations are still ongoing in to what caused his death. A post mortem examination is due to take place later this week.

Head of sixth form Adrian Norris said the teenager, who was known as Tobi, was an exceptional student who took every opportunity that his short life presented.

He added in a statement released by the school: "Kind-hearted and community minded, he was fully involved in every aspect of school life. A superb role model and mentor to the younger boys of the School, he was a first class academic intending to apply to Oxford to study Mathematics.

"An outstanding musician representing the School in countless public concerts, Tobi was also a talented rugby player.

"Strong in his faith, his warmth and generosity of spirit made him enormously popular, and the deep sadness at his all too tragic loss is being felt in all corners of the School. He will be sadly missed, but his short yet valuable life will also be rightfully celebrated."

Tobi played rugby for the school's third XV and was due to perform at another school concert in the next few weeks.

He was also involved in the Sutton Christian Centre, where it is understood his father was a director of the Sutton Christian Centre Trust.

Surrey Police are not treating the death as suspicious. The Surrey Coroner has been informed.
