World champion surfer Andy Irons has died - possibly of dengue fever - at the age of 32, has learned.

Irons - who won three world titles - was found dead Tuesday in a hotel room near the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. He was there waiting to return home to Kauia, Hawaii after he was forced to drop out of a competition in Puerto Rico because he wasn't feeling well.

Irons reportedly had contracted dengue fever, a viral disease known to be transmitted by mosquitoes, according to surfing officials.
