A Dublin man has died following a car crash in Spain.

Sean McShea (34) was the driver of a car that crashed at the entrance to Estepona Port at 5am on Monday.

Mr McShea has been living in the Costa del Sol region with his wife Lia for over eight years where he ran a successful fitness business.

It is believed nobody else was injured in the crash.

Earlier this year the former boxer and personal trainer was hailed a local hero after he risked his life to save dozens of people who were sleeping inside a burning block of flats in Duquesa Port.

Mr McShea tackled the blaze with an extinguisher he had found after spotting the blaze on his way home.

The Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed it was providing consular assistance to his family.
