The circumstances of his death are unclear.

Police told The Phuket News that Mr Lipatov drowned after he went swimming in stormy seas, but friends of the Russian man say he was involved in an accident while spear fishing.

Mr Lipatov, known as “Captain Den”, had lived in Phuket for 10 years and is survived by wife Olga.

Data from diving computer equipment Mr Lipatov was wearing at the time is expected to come back tomorrow, possibly clarifying what might have happened.
