Martin Dyer was paragliding around Talloires-Montmin, near Annecy, in eastern France, on July 14 when the tragic accident occurred.

John Gittins, chief coroner for North Wales, said no post-mortem examination was carried out in France but he was told Martin Dyer had multiple injuries, the Daily Mail confirmed on Tuesday 9 August.

The chief coroner also confirmed that he had received very few details from the French authorities about the circumstances.

The investigation has now been deferred until John Gittins has more information.

At the time of his death, his family said: “We are all really heartbroken to have lost our dad.”

“He was full of life and laughter and would drop everything in a heartbeat if any of us needed him.”

“He encouraged us in everything we did and made us believe that we could achieve anything we put our minds to.”

“The void he leaves in our lives will be felt by many as he was loved by many. He was a very funny man and always spread joy to others.”

“Though our hearts are heavy, the memories we have shared will live on forever.”

Martin was a former Hafal Football Club player and manager who posted: “We are devastated to learn of the passing of club legend Martin Dyer.”

“As a player, then as a manager, Martin was a true stalwart for the club. We will always be grateful for all the time he dedicated to the team. It was a great presence to have him around, both on and off the pitch.”

“Our thoughts are with all of his family and friends during this difficult time. Rest easy Martin.
