The supposed game sees two people taking turns to punch one another.

The game ends when one of the contestants gives in.

Tragically, Tommy Main, 23 – who had a four year old daughter – is claimed to have collapsed shortly after he was hit during ‘Punch 4 Punch’ at a party.

Tommy, from South East London, was taken to hospital in a critical condition but later died.

Earlier, his brother, Roy, went online to express his grief at the loss of his brother

He wrote: “I had to say good by to my little brother today for the last time.

“I’m hurting so bad I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again.

“For the people at the party who call yourselves friends, you should have stopped it, not try and film it. I hope you can’t sleep.”

A fellow partygoer was arrested and has been released on bail.

Police are now waiting for a post mortem examination to establish the exact cause of his death.
