The body has been transferred to the Institute of Legal Medicine for an autopsy.

It is not yet known if the man was under the influence of any drugs.

Local news report that he is the first to have died from "balconing" in the Balearics this year.

In 2018 five Brits died after plummeting from hotel balconies.
