A pensioner found dead on the beach in the Enaerios area in Limassol on Tuesday morning most likely died from natural causes, police said.

It was initially reported that beachgoers found Giorgos Efstathiou, 67, floating in the sea at 7am and immediately administered CPR but to no avail.

It is now believed that he died on the beach, and police have ruled out foul play and drowning as the causes of death.

He was rushed to Limassol general hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

While officers were trying to find out who he was his daughter reported the man missing. She identified him and told police he had been suffering from health problems.

A post mortem will be carried out to ascertain the exact causes of death.
