The body of former British boxer Michael Graydon, who went missing last month, was found in a rocky crevice in Monaco, the prosecutor’s office of the principality has said.

His body was found by passers-by in a deep crevice on private land. Early investigations suggested he fell head-first.

“An iPhone, a wallet and a driving licence in Michael Graydon’s name were found in searches at the scene,” the prosecutor’s office said yesterday.

The body was also identified by a distinctive tattoo of flowers on a bicep.

Graydon, a former boxer who headed a boxing organisation near Bristol in southeast England, was visiting Monaco to attend a bout.

He went missing in the area in the early hours of February 21 after spending the evening in a nightclub.

CCTV footage showed him climbing a wall before falling into the crevice.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out to determine the cause of death, the prosecutor’s office said.

Monaco authorities said Graydon’s body would be handed over to his partner and parents who are in the principality as soon as possible.
